Markus Jungmann is based just outside of Kenmare, on the Beara Peninsula. Here he connects with the rich and ever-changing colours, shapes and atmospheres of the mountains surrounding his studio. Markus is working with simple shapes to leave room for the expressive surfaces he produces with his glazes.

Markus's wares are glazed in the most environmentally conscious way, recycling locally sourced wood ash and using natural minerals in a high temperature firing process that makes the use of poisonous substances like lead or cadmium unnecessary. The spectrum of colours (especially the reds) are produced by manipulating the firing atmosphere in a manually controlled gas kiln. The finished pieces are of exceptional quality and being made by hand are only produced in small quantities.
