This weekend I went to Dublin to watch the Irish rugby team in a heart breaking defeat. For those of you that don’t follow a sport I would advise that you keep it that way.it is far too much of an emotional roller coaster. I am pretty sure I aged about ten years yesterday.
Arriving home late today there was a bit of a race against the light. I wanted so much to show you my purchase from last Friday’s madness and luckily I just managed a few shots before darkness descended.
I love these pieces so much that I got up before dawn and waited in below freezing conditions for hours so that I could snap them up in the window sale.
They made by Arklow Pottery, County Wicklow. I have spoken about Arklow pottery before and my obsession with the brand has grown and grown. The thought that they closed because there wasn’t a market for their pieces in Ireland makes me think that they were just ahead of their time.
The pattern and detail is so spectacular and so much more interesting than a lot of the newer pottery pieces that make their way to wedding lists.
These pieces are so elegant and unique and made right here in Ireland. What’s not to love!
