Holly O’Meehan

Holly O’Meehan works with two distinctive, apparently unrelated mediums – crochet and ceramic. A dexterous handler of both, O’Meehan brings these two materials into harmony. The objects she creates are yarn-and-clay hybrids – hard, fired clay is pierced and shaped to allow the weaving-in of natural fibres, which in turn drape, hang, suspend or wrap the ceramic. Working in her Fremantle studio, O’Meehan appropriates natural forms like teeth, quills, spines and thorns, nestling them among gentler, softer textures and voluptuously rounded surfaces.
