Based in Kilkenny city, Aisling graduated from the DCCOI Ceramics Skills and Design Course in 2016. She set up Aisling McElwain Ceramics later that year. Her work has been shortlisted for a number of awards and won the Image Interiors award for Best Tableware in 2018. She makes simple classic forms with a contemporary feel to create timeless pieces to suit any home.
Inspired by the clay itself, Aisling "Slate" range accentuates the difference between the texture of unglazed ceramic, on the outside of the pot, and the smooth teal-hued glaze, on the inside. Some pieces are embellished with a band of gold lustre along the rim, which adds an extra element of timeless elegance.
