  The Potters Yard

The stone house and outbuildings, grouped around a 'Bawn', were standing on this site 200 years ago.
Builder John Cleary renovated the derelict buildings in 1993, using local craftsmen, drawing on his rare sensitivity for the vernacular architecture of his native South Wexford.

In 1997 the Potters Yard was established by Patricia Howard, an accomplished potter of many years experience, to produce Slipware and to teach her craft to others.

We all welcome you and we hope you will enjoy creating and relaxing at our atmospheric home.

Established with a grant from Wexford Enterprise Board


The Wood Firing Kiln

The Wood firing kiln was built in 1999 as part of a local project for the Millenium. Built entirely by the family, it was based on a design from traditional kiln builders.
