We’re kicking off a series of Meet the Makers Videos here on The Irish Store. See what goes on behind the scenes of your favourite Irish brands and designers, see how the products are made and learn about the unique stories behind them.
First up in our Meet the Makers Videos is Belleek Pottery in County Fermanagh. Meet John Maguire and Fergus Cleary, workers in Belleek who tell us the story behind this world renowned pottery.
Dating back to 1857, Belleek is still very much evident in our culture today continuously taking inspirations from the beauty of its surroundings in County Fermanagh as well as the Irish heritage. Belleek continue to produce fine parian china with intricate details the same way they did 150 years ago with very few machines being used.
To celebrate the launch of this video we’re offering up to 41% off our entire Belleek range.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this short video on the legendary pottery that is Belleek.
The team at The Irish Store http://www.TheIrishStore.com visited the Belleek Pottery in County Fermanagh, Ireland in February 2014. John and Fergus explain the story behind one of the most famous China brands in the world, and we show you some behind the scenes footage of your favourite pieces being hand crafted.
