Lurgan, Northern Ireland
Joshua Lyness studied Foundation Art and Design at Ulster University with the goal of becoming an animator. On his foundation year he fell in love with ceramics and swapped his computer for a potter’s wheel. He was immediately drawn by the tangible, tactile nature of the craft. Josh graduated with a 1st Class Honours in Ceramics and in 2019 he set up Mud Ireland with his wife Holly. Their beautiful pottery is handmade from their home garage studio in Lurgan.
