Clair Jones - Lough Gur Pottery

Hello – I’m Clair. Welcome to Lough Gur Pottery

I have lived beside Lough Gur in the Midwest of Ireland for over 20 years. Lough Gur is a unique place in the Irish cultural and historical landscape – it has been inhabited for over 6000 years, and the lake and its surrounds have revealed many archaeological treasures, including numerous pieces of pottery.

I am intrigued by the time-honoured ceremonies that these ancient pots were a part of, and their carved surfaces inspire my techniques and surface patterns. I combine ancient methods with modern approaches; However the core essence is always the same – embellish your everyday.

I hope that my handcrafted pottery will play a part in your everyday ceremonies – that warm mug of rich coffee first thing in the morning, to that lovingly arranged vase of freshly cut flowers. I hope it will encourage you to relish and embellish your everyday.
