Description

Welcome to Belleek nestled on the restless on the shores of Lough Erne. Visit the pottery where generations of skilled artisans inspired by the Irish countryside have created its iconic porcelain. Let these potters absorb you in their work as they transform nature into porcelain with the relaxed confidence of generations of experience. Watch the master potters absorbed in their delicate work and discover some of their skills outside the factory ranging from football to thatching. This film by Roy Spence and J.J. Tohill has an unmistakeably nostalgic appeal in keeping with the tradition of Belleek itself.
