Orla O Visual Art's profile image

Orla O Regan - "My love of words has led me to create an evocative and emotive range of framed ceramic art pieces entitled ‘Words in Porcelain’. I believe that words are immensely personal to those who consume them, and through ‘Words in Porcelain’ I aim to stir the senses through meaningful words, forever immortalised in porcelain."

'Cloths of Heaven' WB Yeats

This would be a beautiful gift for a loved one - Wedding or Engagement. One of Yeats most popular poems. Perhaps its brevity and simplicity is one reason why this Yeats poem is so loved. A beautiful poem where the message is straightforward, and a perennial one in poetry (and, indeed, song lyrics). The speaker, addressing his lover or would-be lover, says: if I were a rich man, I’d give you the world and all its treasures.

Where to buy

Orla ensures her handmade art reflects what people are looking for. Each piece is bespoke and will never be recreated! Porcelain is her ceramic of choice, with her works however, defying the traditional pristine porcelain finish, whereby a rugged Porcelain landscape is her canvas. Rough to the touch, these pieces reflect a rawness, which is sometimes difficult to appreciate. Orla views it as perfection within imperfection."
