About Rossa Pottery

History &


In the 1950’s Ned Walsh emigrated to London where he worked in Pinewood Studios as a wages clerk.

He met the artists that worked on the set designs and they advised him to go to Art College knowing he had a flare for design. This is where he studied pottery and sculpture and created the secret formula for Rossa’s unique glazes.

He came back to Ireland and established Rossa Pottery in 1962 in a stable yard at the back of a pub on Main Street in Cashel. On his own he exported all over the world.

Designed &

Hand thrown

Alan having grown up in the Pottery environment was naturally drawn towards the love of clay and creating with his dad. After studying and working in various potteries in Ireland and abroad he came home with extra skills and joined Ned where they created Rossa’s blue range.

Not long after Sarah joined Rossa Pottery in 1997 having met Alan in college years before.

The three worked together and perfected the Rossa range that it is today.

Ireland’s oldest handmade pottery. We don’t use machines or moulds only our hands and the pottery wheel.
