Dutch artist Sonia Landweer studied at the Amsterdam School of Industrial Design. In 1965 she moved to Ireland to set up a ceramic studio at the Kilkenny Design Workshop. Landweer's innovative practice in jewellery, body sculpture, bronze and ceramics has evolved from a close relationship with the natural world. Landweer’s ceramic works have been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Ireland and Europe since the 1960s, including retrospectives at Visual, Carlow; the National Craft Gallery, Kilkenny and Designyard, Dublin. Her work is represented in public and private collections worldwide.
To ensure the health and safety of the public, IMMA’s galleries will remain closed until Thursday 3 December 2020 due to the extension of Level 5 restrictions . The grounds of IMMA and the RHK will remain open. Thank you for your cooperation.
