First established in 1953 by Philip Pearce who developed the Shanagarry range of black and white earthenware that became internationally recognised for its elegance of form and pure functionality. Stephen began his own pottery next door in 1973 and started his Classic range of terracotta and white pottery. The two potteries officially merged in 1993 on Philip's death.

Travelled here while visiting the area on the 30th December. Very disappointed overall. Expected a lot more from such a prominent designer brand.

Quaint building in a lovely rural setting. Some lovely pottery for sale - need to keep your hands in your pockets or you could put a burden on your credit card. And a gorgeous tea room for lunch or snacks. Well worth a visit.
