Nicholas Mosse Pottery & Dinnerware
Handmade in County Kilkenny, Ireland
This beautiful Irish pottery is handthrown from strong earthenware, then each design element is applied separately with intricately cut sponges. Delicate details give the pottery an unusually light and elegant appeal. This type of spongeware, using colorful repeating patterns and borders, derives from a Victorian tradition which began around 1850. Based on this early technique, Nicholas Mosse Pottery displays the unique and happy spontaneity which only truly handmade objects possess.
Nick's insistence on quality and his team's committment to it have made the pottery one of the most exclusive and best studio workshops in Ireland, indeed, even in the whole of the British Isles. The flowers and animals exist in their own special world, making a cabinet full of Nicholas Mosse Pottery as irresistible as the Irish countryside.
