Freda Rupp

Freda Rupp is primarily concerned with form. The marks on her forms are suggested by the cracks and fissures in rocks and surfaces and the debris that becomes lodged in these cracks. She sees the marks as a record of the history of the surfaces and is interested in the patterns made by these marks, the images they suggest and the feelings and memories they evoke.

 Her work is unglazed and intentionally non-functional. The contrast between the textured appearance and the tactile quality of the pieces is an important part of the work. Her current works are hand built from white stoneware  clay, using various combinations of slabbing  coiling and moulding. Each piece is carved, multi fired ,sanded between firings and embedded with white porcelain or fine silver pebbles.

 She studied sculpture and ceramics at NCAD, Dublin. She later went on to study at Canterbury Christchurch University UK. Where she gained an M.A. in ceramics. She lives and works in Waterford.
