Owner description: We have been making unique porcelain and stoneware in Roundstone since 1981. Rosemarie O'Toole decorates porcelain thrown by her husband Seamus Laffan. She also makes an extensive range of porcelain jewellery. Her artwork on paper is available framed and unframed. A wide range of durable handmade tiles decorated by Rosemarie is on offer & we can design plaques for house names or business use. We also make a wide range of distinctive domestic stoneware and are happy to take on orders for same. Our work is available exclusively from our studio, opening daily 10-6. Off season please ring to confirm but we are there most days. It should not be confused with the imported industrial ware sold as ' Roundstone Pottery ' throughout the country since 2011, which has no connection with us or this village.

The craftsmanship is excellent. I purchased a beautiful, lightweight mug in medium blue tones. It has held up well to frequent use. The ceramic earrings are unique and a warm shade of green (reminiscent of Connemara marble). Seamus and Rose are quite modest about their talents. The location within a former monastery and its proximity to the music center make it an ideal place to stop in Roundstone to talk with the artists and perhaps buy some Irish goods.

I purchased three necklaces that rivaled any that I saw in Ireland. Take the time to find this charming studio.

This pottery is in the grounds of a monastery, a cool project to bring together artists. We loved their pottery, particularly the round stone salt & pepper, which help us think of this place each day. There are two styles of pottery, the earth stone type and the art works, beautiful plates and lamps with stunning designs. We also bought some charming jewellery in pottery with Irish motifs. Very friendly couple whom we enjoyed chatting with. Don't miss this spot!

What a fabulous place in Roundstone. Greeted by lovely staff with such enthusiasm for their creations.
Lovely to see local businesses using their products in guesthouses and restaurants and even nicer to be able to purchase the products and look at them in your own home.
