Profile

Diana Skalkos was born in Cork in 1970. She studied ceramics, sculpture and design at Kensington and Chelsea college and Westminster Universirty, London. She has spent extended periods of time in Greece and and India studying and making pottery. Diana’s work has been exhibited in Ireland, Greece and the UK.

Her tiles are hand rolled and cut from wet clay referring to ancient Greek techniques. The surface edges are smoothed by hand making each one unique in form. After weeks of slow drying the work is then high fired to ensure durability and is hand painted with glaze and refired again up to 5 times to achieve the depth of colour.
