Welcome to Rosie's Pottery and crafts
Rosie's Pottery and Crafts is an artisan ceramics and gift shop situated along the Wild Atlantic Way in the heart of Easkey, Co. Sligo. Owned by renowned designer Rosemary Mc Gowan, each piece is hand-crafted and fired on-site in her working studio that she shares with her beloved dog Leo.
Rosies pottery is durable, functional and designed for everyday use, however it is her distinctive hand-painting and flower stem-printing techniques that give her work its delicate look and feel.

"I always had a fascination with clay. I would gather it up and make mud pots with my mother at the kitchen table"
Rosies fascination with clay hasn’t wavered since her childhood days, playing around in the mud. She learned her craft at Quay Stone Pottery in Ballina and then went onto to study Ceramics and Pottery in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny. After working with Michael Kennedy Pottery and Breeogue Pottery in Sligo, Rosie set up her own studio in Easkey.
It is the raw and wild landscape that is so unique to Sligo that inspires Rosies design process. You can see the natural textures of local stone and flora speak through her work.
We supported Design & Crafts Council Ireland (DCCI) with their nationwide ‘Made Local’, you can own it’ summer 2020 campaign to encourage shoppers in Ireland to buy Irish design and craft instore or online.
Sadly, due to COVID 2020 restrictions, all classes are postponed until restrictions have been lifted.
Ever wanted to learn how to throw a bowl?
Rosie runs pottery classes for adults and children in her working studio. These classes are suited to people at all levels, from beginners to those looking to broaden their existing skillset and hand turning techniques.
Pottery classes make a great gift and can be booked as single or group classes.
Rosie's Pottery and Crafts is a must stop along the Northern end of the Wild Atlantic Way, situated close to the now famous Artisan bakery and grocer; Pudding Row, McGowans Pub and a 5 minute walk from Easkey Castle and breathtaking foreshore.
