Pottery at the RDS Showcase Ireland 2018
Pynck attended Showcase Ireland 2018, where many beautiful Irish-crafted items were on show – least of which was pottery!
Pottery was well represented, and one of our favourices was the Diem Pottery & Design Studio. Thomas Diem is a second generation designer and potter. Born in NYC but living in Ireland since he was a child, his first taste of pottery came in his own father’s studio.

Nicholas Mosse won in his category, and Pynck were taken aback by the lovely clean and colourful designs. Nicholas Mosse Pottery was established by Nicholas Mosse in 1976 after periods of training in England and Japan. His mission was to produce beautiful, functional pottery in the style of Irish Spongeware. Irish spongeware was the traditional pottery of Ireland used in the 18th Century.
