Dunbeacon Pottery

Dunbeacon Pottery

Functionality is key in every piece by Dunbeacon Pottery. Situated on the stunning sheeps head peninsula in West Cork, every item in the range is designed, thrown and glazed by Dublin native Helen Ennis who took over this pottery studio in 2000. Producing essential kitchenware from stoneware clay, in three simple glazes, Helen takes inspiration from the surrounding landscape to create understated items for everyday use.

On a beautiful Summers day, we made the four hour drive to Helen's studio located outside Durrus to gain a greater insight into her practice: Dunbeacon Pottery
