Owned and managed by the world-renowned potter, a trip to Stephen Pearce Pottery, is a must for anyone visiting the Cork area. Located in Shanagarry, about 20 minutes from Cork city, this emporium contains a large collection of Stephen Pearce's own work. His four ranges are called Celebration, Shanagarry, Terracotta and Gold. Also on display, is work by other internationally recognized craftspeople. There is also a cafe serving tasty snacks.
The owner of this shop, Jill Bell, is one of the leading lights of the Cork Free Choice Consumer Group. As well as lobbying on behalf of good food, she sells an extensive range of organic vegetables and wholefoods at this aptly named outlet. All the produce on offer is top quality, as you would expect. She sources her organic vegetables from Jenny Haith of Ballyroe Organics (tel: +353 28 97366).
Gillian Dwyer is a potter and ceramic artist; her charming shop is filled with beautifully designed handmade stoneware. The pieces are suitable for both ornamental and functional use. Her colourful teapots and mugs would be a handsome addition to any kitchen while there are also many figurative and more abstract pieces that catch the eye. This is the perfect place to find an original gift for a special friend. Tax-free shopping is available to all non-EU residents.
