I first purchased a pair of mugs on a trip to Ireland several years ago. I jumped at the chance to add to my collection with a beautiful cruet and a serving platter. I love the line and movement of the glaze!

Meet The Makers

Have you ever visited a place and just fallen in love and wished you could stay....well thats what happened to me.

As a Cork native on a trip to Kilkenny I knew this was a place I wanted to set up my pottery business

Under the gaze of Kilkenny Castle are a collection of coach houses, stables and out buildings that make up The Castle Yard. I located my pottery in one of these beautiful preserved buildings.  

The stables had been the home to the Kilkenny Design Workshops which helped to create best practice in craft and design. 

Ray Power

We stand on the shoulders of Kilkenny Design Workshops and are constantly inspired by their design aesthetic.

Claire Molloy

Our pottery reflects Irelands rich tradition of storytelling. Those moments that are handed down around the fireplace. Pottery has always played its part by enriching the experience of family meals or a pot of tea shared with a good friend.
