Handmade Tableware, Lamps, Giftware, One-off Ceramics, Felt Artwork
Gaillard Pottery was first created in the early 1970’s in Dublin and Wicklow by Alan Gaillard and re-opened in 2009 at his new purpose-built studios in Clifden, Connemara. Using all natural raw materials for his glazes Alan produces a range of high-fired stoneware ceramics, including table and ovenware, lamps, giftware and also individual one-off pieces that are ideal for wedding presents or as gifts for special occasions. Alan’s unique work also combines intricate beach-combed driftwood and 4000 year old bogwood uncannily moulded by the sea into life-like forms, with hand-built ceramic bases.
Visitors are most welcome to visit us at our studios situated only 2 km from Clifden on the main N59 road to Westport, where you can also see the felt art landscapes by Alan’s wife Sandra.
Opening times approximately 10:00-17:00 (18:00 in Summer) daily and usually on Sunday afternoons. Closed January and February; however you can phone for an appointment at any time.
