“Our unique selling point is the lush colour of our glazes, which are all our own recipes.” It is the aim of Castle Arch Pottery to make bold honest pieces that will stand out and enhance any domestic setting be it formal or decorative. Each piece is made in small production batches on the potter’s wheel, allowing great attention to be paid to decorative details. Corkman Ray Power studied ceramic design at Crawford College in Cork. He’s been producing Castle Arch tableware and giftware at the Castle Yard in Kilkenny since 1994. Ray draws inspiration from Celtic patterns such as the Newgrange spirals and traditional motifs and prints.
