'Fitzpatrick' - Irish Wolfhound
Ceramic, Stoneware, Oxidised colour wash and glaze, Height 42cm
By Ostinelli & Priest
Strictly speaking because we are 100% Irish Made at We Have It Wrapped Up, Fitzpatrick should not be here (because it was made in England)! But Stephen reckons Paul Priest and Gaynor Ostinelli are 'Friends of Ireland' and too good not to have here, so there we are!
Stephen bought his first piece by Paul and Gaynor back in 2008 and has been collecting their work since, These animals, caricatures, are bursting with life and individual character, playful and witty, their textural ceramic surfaces ooze a quality and confidence of touch - each is a one-off and currently looking for a new forever home!
