Belleek Studio Collection Etch Mugs Set of 4
Studio is a new collection created in-house by our design and production teams at Belleek Pottery. Overlooking Lower Lough Erne, stands our impressive factory and creative design studio in County Fermanagh. Established in 1857, over 60 craftspeople manufacture our famous Parian China using the same skills passed down through the generations. Each hand crafted piece originates as a concept in the studio, where our product designers take inspiration from our museum archive, travel, galleries and surrounding nature. Images, colour and techniques are collated and developed into next season’s Artisan Homeware collections.
With vintage style imagery influenced by Victorian prints and printing techniques, the Etch Mugs are a celebration of Belleek Pottery's past. These mugs have been inspired by Belleek's now retired method of tissue transfer printing and our archive of copper printing plates. Beautifully detailed engraved copper printing plates were once used to print onto tissue paper, this tissue paper was then used to transfer the print directly onto the ware before it was fired. Although we no longer employ this method of printing, the Etch Mugs are handcrafted in Ireland where the processes of manufacture have remained mostly unchanged for over 160 years.
