Artist home / Margaret O’Rorke

“my kind of home”

Ceramist Margaret O Rorke lives and works in her fifteenth century hall house in Oxfordshire. The house is furnished with plain wooden doors, simple oak furniture and graphic artworks – all of which provide a contrast to Margaret’s dazzling, light-emitting porcelain creations.

    Ceramics meets light in the Porcelain Sculptures by Margaret O’Rorke. The potter, praised by American Craft, with her works reminds us that even one of the oldest materials is object of continuous research and improvement by the artists. Art is exploration!

    Hi Margareth
    Chiara Olivi here. I would like to congratulate for your wonderful works.
    These inspired me for my first fashion collection that I will present tomorrow as my thesis for Fashion Design graduation in Rome, Italy.
    I wanted to share with you my emotions and pleasure in working with your signs and volumes.
    Chiara Olivi
