NICHOLAS MOSSE POTTERY
Inspired by an old Irish tradition of vernacular, country-style ceramics, Nicholas Mosse has spent the last 46 years perfecting his handmade and decorated craft. The longstanding collectability and popularity of this pottery can be traced to its true quality, strength, design and feel. It is colourful, but almost all the colours can be mixed and matched, so it will sit perfectly amongst other pieces on your dresser. Nick's ecological status is also a bonus, as hydroelectricity helps create the pots and enormous recycling efforts are made.
