With Irish-made design in high demand both at home and abroad and items made by artisans enjoying precedence over mass-produced goods, ceramic artists from Ireland are having a moment. Here are a few places in County Cork alone to find superb pottery.
East Cork’s Shanagarry Pottery was originally established by Philip Pearce during the 1950s, before being taken over by his son Stephen, who also established his own unique brand. Today, Stephen Pearce designs are renowned across the world, and items are still made using clay sourced from a nearby river in Cork. Classic, perfectly made and timeless, pieces you buy here will last a lifetime.
