From his Belfast studio Stephen leads an amazing team that create work celebrated throughout the world. Stephen's entrepreneurial style means he is constantly developing new work, using different media.
Stephen's ‘Captured Memories’ are the embodiment of his drawings and ceramics. His original landscape drawings are printed and then fired onto hand rolled porcelain, each piece is uniquely cut, ripped and stamped in his Belfast studio ‘Timeless landscapes and memories, captured forever in porcelain’.
What Stephen Calls his ‘Simple Pots & Platters’ are cheeky, playful, bold & quirky, domestic in nature and made to be used. He doesn't make too many of these pots, and their character is often dependant on the prevailing mood! So if you like the pots our advice is to buy them while they're hot from the kiln, Stephen’s not likely to be making the same pieces again as time moves on.
Stephen Farnan Studied and trained in Fine & Applied Arts at Belfast School of Art before going on to London's Royal College of Art. He then spent several years teaching and throwing, in the USA and Benburb before opening his studio in Belfast in 2014.
Although having made plenty of quirky awards over the years Stephen proudly informs us that the closest he has ever got to winning an award was an Easter egg colouring competition in 1983, (Stephen won that Best Coloured Egg Competition - aged 8). Awards or not, our Pots & Captured Memories are coveted by people the world over, which is good enough for us.
