Shopping-online has become the norm for many this Christmas festive period – and so, more than ever, we hope that you will consider shopping local. In that way, whether you’re looking for corporate or family gift ideas, you can support small businesses and help them to grow and create more jobs in Ireland.
Sarah McKenna has been creating her unique handmade Irish pottery for over 20 years in Bridge Street Studios, Dundalk. Located on the top floor of a 250-year-old grain store, Sarah shares the studio with seven art, design and craftspeople, who are celebrating 25 years in operation this year. Often using quotes, poetry and lyrics; Sarah has a knack for transforming everyday objects into unique gifts - preserved as an heirloom for the future.
Sarah creates custom and personalised pottery works for her customers, with options ranging from wall art, plates and platters and vases to candle holders, lamps and bowls. If you’re looking for a bargain, McKenna has a ‘€25 and under’ range of ceramic Christmas decorations that are sure to impress.
Handmade gifts are a brilliant way to buy Irish and support local creatives at a troubling time in their industries, and Sarah McKenna’s work couldn’t be more perfect to showcase to friends and family.
