Item Description

This beautiful set will look fantastic in your home or can be given as a unique gift. The set includes 6 cups, 6 saucers, a creamer and sugar bowl.

Louis Mulcahy’s dream was to produce superb pottery and to develop a studio which would leave an indelible print on the long term history of Irish handcraft. In this aspiration he has certainly succeeded and in 2004 he became the first Irish craftsman ever to receive an honorary degree from the National University of Ireland in recognition of his artistry and the prosperity it has brought to his community.

All Louis’ work is produced at his studio in Dingle, Ireland where he continues to research materials and experiment with new designs. Over the years, the pottery continually refined its clay body for durability and its shapes and glazes for beauty. This devotion to quality has gained worldwide recognition, and the pottery has a special reputation for its large pots and rich, lively, lustrous glazes. His work is utterly modern and distinctively Irish, reflecting the magnificent scale and dramatic colours of his Dingle landscape.

Black Swan is an elegant boutique in the heart of old Mount Pleasant. They regret to announce they will be closing their doors permanently as of April 30, so make sure you bid on this beautiful set and visit them for other great finds!
