June Turner, Castlecove Pottery, County Kerry, Ireland Empty CASTLECOVE POTTERY COUNTY KERRY IRELAND

I bought my first piece of Castlecove pottery today and it won't be my last, I LOVE the natural form of this three inch bud vase ,the ragged edge to the neck giving it that 'just picked' look and the superb glaze effect completing it's natural gourd-like effect.
I rank it alongside Geoffrey Swindell pottery and would happily display Swindell and Castlecove on the same shelf of a cabinet.

Hi All,
The little round pot belonging to Dan and also Ed's taller one were both made by my mother, June.I would say the square shaped taller one is quite a bit older.She made variations on both these designs throughout her career.She also made very distinctive wall-hanging pieces that looked like water-bottles or wine skins-very Mexican in appearance.They'd be interesting to find.All the best, Cara.

to be honest,I nearly didn't as they are not as appealing as my first piece of Castlecove but curiosity got the better of me

I like your first piece a lot more too, tho I suspect these 2 are nicer in person than the pictures suggest.

Flash seems to have washed them out a bit (Could just be the settings on my screen!)
