Kiltrea pottery is light years away from the machine-made and the mass-produced. Kitchenware is quietly understated, restrained, and elegant while garden pieces exhibit clean, robust and enduring lines.Kiltrea pottery is distinctive: Michael’s creations are instantly recognisable and possess fluidity, grace and honesty of form. However, as is often the case with anything that looks straightforward, Michael’s work reflects a maker who has immense technical skill and a keen understanding of the material he uses.
Michael’s work displays incredible attention to detail and showcases the sheer organic beauty of the clay he works with; clay which is processed on-site in Kiltrea from raw materials sourced locally in Wexford and from counties Cavan, Cork and Tipperary. Michael researches and experiments with his own unique blends to produce a clay that is of a superior quality, durability and strength. Michael and his team of local craftspeople produce pots that grace glamorous kitchens, enchanting patios and both private and public gardens throughout Ireland and Europe.
