Every piece of Loaf Pottery is handmade by our in-house potter. Each pot has been handcrafted with care on the potter’s wheel, before being hand glazed and fired in our kiln.
Pots should be like twins
We believe pots should be like twins; they may look similar but each has its own unique character. These subtle differences are shown by the throwing rings on the outside of the pot, the indelible marks left behind by the the potter’s hands. From ball of clay, to finished pot, we lovingly design, sculpt,
and refine each pot over 27 times to get each one just right.
Our Pottery with Purpose is sold by a range of stockists including our valued partners at National Museums NI.
Their Retail Manager, Catherine McGoldrick, says:
‘’The Loaf range of colourful mugs are always popular with customers across our sites, who love the handmade nature and the fact they are supporting social purpose with their purchase! A great fit for our museums!’’
