Patrick O’Donohue trained as a Ceramic Artist and Potter over 25 years ago. He studied at Wolverhampton University from 1989, gaining a BA Hons in 3D Design Ceramics and later he returned to complete a Masters Degree in Art and Design. He has had numerous exhibitions locally and regionally and has worked in post 16 Education since 1995, initially as a full-time teacher of Art and Ceramics, and then as Head of Art and Design for 8 years. Though his career in education has moved in new directions, he has always quietly continued to explore creative ideas through sketchbook studies and more recently again through clay. His current ceramic work is developed directly from drawings of landscape and the endless possibilities in natural forms, textures and colours. He makes wheel thrown and hand-built ceramics using an extensive range of mark making, drawing and painting techniques to create individual and expressive decorative pieces.
