Designer: Castle Arch Pottery
- Co. Kilkenny
Inspired by a tradition of coming together. Stories are told across the dinner table or sitting by the fire with a hot pot of tea and a plate of scones. These moments that are central to our lives have influenced the design and making process. It is our hope that our pottery will last a lifetime of coming together and that it becomes part of you story.
About Castle Arch Pottery
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.
We stand on the shoulders of Kilkenny Design Workshops and are constantly inspired by their design aesthetic.
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.
We make contemporary heirlooms that last a lifetime of get togethers and our hope is that you pass these on so they become part of your story.

Handles and decoration are applied after a few hours when the pot have had a chance to dry. When the pots are bone dry they are ready for the bisque firing to 1000cc after which they are glazed and then re-fired to 1230cc. This process makes them both dishwasher and microwave proof.
