Thomas Diem    

 

Thomas Diem will be conducting live pottery demonstrations on 15th and 16th December from 11am.

 

Born in Queens, New York in 1969, Thomas Diem was immersed in the world of handmade pottery and ceramics from a very young age.  His father, a classically trained ceramicist, came to Ireland in the late seventies. Early days studying under leading Irish potters acted both as an education and an incitement for Thomas to find his own individual style. 

 

After honing his skills with the Craft Council of Ireland, Thomas struck out on his own in 1997 with his line of pottery catering for the new, design conscious Irish market.  Since that time, Diem Ceramics has become a staple of Interior Design and Giftware catalogues, and his work is available in Design Centres nationwide and from his workshop in Ashbourne, Co Meath.
