A Little About O’Riain Pottery

O’Riain Pottery was established in 1998 by master craftsman John Ryan and is situated in the southern heartland of county Sligo. John makes both functional and decorative stoneware pottery, drawing inspiration from the surrounding rural landscape.

Similarly to the past when Irish pottery was found on the tables of homesteads throughout the country, our handmade and manually decorated stoneware is offered to consumers looking for an alternative to uniform and uninspiring mass production.

The special glaze makes our pottery durable, highly resistant to chipping, scratching and entirely safe while used for serving food. They are cadmium and lead free. Due to the very high quality, all of our pottery can be used in microwave, oven and dish washer. Only natural and ecological materials are used throughout the entire production process. After throwing, finishing and glazing all products are fired to 1250 °C (2280 °F).
