All about Natasha Swan Ceramics- Handmade pottery in Northern Ireland
Hello and a big welcome to Natasha Swan Ceramics- ran by me, Natasha Swan (with a little help from my pottery dog, Bamse, and my husband, Craig). We’re based in a little village called Islandmagee in Northern Ireland and really there’s no place we would rather be.
With a big thank you to my parents for converting their garage and help from the local enterprise board, Natasha Swan Ceramics was officially launched in 2020 with myself becoming fully self employed in the most memorable year of our lives for many reasons.
My road to becoming a full time maker included making a lot of bad pots and thankfully a few good ones, between Ulster University Belfast and most importantly The Design and Craft Council of Ireland ‘Pottery Skills Course’ I studied and worked for various other potteries across the country fine tuning my skills an designs.
Thank you everyone for making this journey a reality, I really couldn’t do it with out you. I hope that with every piece you can experience the joy of owning handmade, deeply loved pottery. Pottery that is inspired by daily life and made to be used accordingly.
Best of wishes,
