In the stillness of the Beara mountains, surrounded by the gentle beauty of the Kerry landscape, and sustained by the gracious warmth of the community, I feel driven to create something that communicates both the wonder I experience looking out the windows of my studio, and the profound gratitude I feel in being surrounded by such majesty. I am intrigued by the aesthetic potential of porcelain and work with glazes that bring out the simple beauty and translucency of the material juxtaposed with expressive and invigorating colour, brightening the dullest of days.
In his studio, in the heart of the Kerry mountains, Markus Jungmann produces fine porcelain of a contemporary design. They are thrown on the wheel and then reduction fired with feldspar, sang de boeuf and ash glazes. His work has been exhibited widely in Ireland
Markus has guided the work of hundreds of students teaching two and a half decades at the CCAD (Crawford College of Art and Design) Cork, sharing the ceramic traditions and knowledge he has gathered in a decade of studies.
