Breeogue Pottery

Breeogue Pottery

Grainne McLaughlin a native of Sligo and her husband Tom Callery established the award winning Breeogue Pottery and Callery Ceramics in the late 1990s. Together they collaborate to produce vessel forms and wall mounted pieces.

Breeogue Pottery takes its name from the beautiful townland of Breeogue, just 4 miles from Sligo Town. Here nestled between Knocknarea Mountain and the shore of Ballisodare Bay, in an 18th century stone barn, is their studio and gallery.

Grainne produces a high-fired stoneware table-top range as well as contemporary lighting. She applies various layers of different glazes over her simple and uncomplicated pottery pieces. Then in the final firing the glazes react with each other creating new patterns and subtle colours inspired by nature and the surrounding Sligo landscape.

Tom works from sketches and photographs of river banks, bogs and landscapes. He incises these images into clay forms and uses an ancient Japanese glazing technique called “raku” which produces an array of rich iridescent colours and hues.
