Horizon Line Ceramics is a small ceramics studio in Massachusetts

Welcome to my world of handcrafted ceramics, where landscapes come to life through the magic of clay and glaze. Every step of the process is done by hand, making each piece one of a kind.

In a world where we are increasingly disconnected from the natural world, I believe that it is more important than ever to remember our connection to nature. My work aims to bring attention to this connection, reminding us of the beauty and importance of the world that surrounds us and the emotional impact it has on our lives.

Every piece made by Aisling Colleary

Each piece is carefully crafted by hand in my home studio in Newton, MA. I create forms using throwing or slab building techniques with a variety of clay bodies, then enhance the surface with a combination of glazes to achieve a range of colors, textures, and depths. The layering of these glazes results in abstract representations of landscapes, inviting the viewer to bring their own interpretations and memories to the piece.

The magic of my ceramics comes from the chemistry of the glazes in the heat of the kiln. The glaze reactions are influenced by the type of clay used, the application techniques, and the firing temperature, making each piece truly unique.

Inspired by nature

I have always been fascinated by the connection between humans and the landscapes that surround us. Landscapes play an important role in shaping our identity, influencing our experiences, and providing a sense of place and belonging. Through my ceramics, I aim to explore this connection and create works that evoke a sense of place, encouraging the viewer to reflect on their own relationship to the world around them.
