New Fuchsia Range on our Website

Wishing you all a great weekend - our new Fuchsia range has now been uploaded onto our website so you can now buy  it online at

This is the Medium Cylinder Jug and below is the tiny jug.

This is the Fruit Bowl - from the side and below, from above.

 And this is the Medium Angled Jug, below.
Our retailers around Ireland and the world are finding this pattern is selling really well for them. Fuchsia grows wild here in Ireland during the summer especially in Cork and Kerry and we think this will work well for summer entertaining but be equally as appealing in the winter months.
We'd love to hear what you think!

Nicholas Mosse Celebrates Donal Skehan's New Book

Last week Donal Skehan - launched his new book Kitchen Hero - Great Food for Less at Dubray Books on Grafton Street, Dublin. Donal has an incredible passion for cooking which has been influenced greatly by his grandmother - "My grandmother is one of the most frugal self-taught cooks you will ever meet: she raised my mom and her six siblings with very little income, but that never stopped her producing wonderfully elegant meals at minimum expense."
Her influence can be seen clearly in his new book as he gives us fabulous meals to suit shrinking food budgets. This book embraces cooking on a shoe string and we could all pick up ideas from his tips with suggestions on cheaper fish and cuts of meat - to the proper way to save leftovers  and even growing your own.
We here at Nicholas Mosse are delighted because Donal has featured three of our pieces in his book - the first two are in our new ovenware range - the large rectangular oven dish in Old Rose is below and it's holding an Aubergine Lasagna.
Below in the Medium Oval oven ware dish in Red Tulip he serves up Boulangere Potatoes.
We love how he he captured the decorations we apply inside - which is what makes these pieces so perfect for oven to table use.
 Here is his delicious Carrot and Cardamon Cake is served on our 9" Apple Cake Plate.
 To celebrate the launch of his new book - we are giving away a signed copy of Kitchen Hero - Great Food For Less. What do you need to do to be in the running to win it?
Leave us a comment here on our blog or on our Facebook page - and tell us about a favourite family dish you like to cook - and is there a special way you like to serve it?

Happy Spring from Nicholas Mosse Pottery

 Hello Avid Nicholas Mosse Fans - somehow we are already  half way through April and we've been quite negligent on our blog posts of late. Our apologies. It's all been madly busy here at Nicholas Mosse HQ - our new Fuchsia pattern and our ovenware ranges are flying out of our own shop here and our retailers around the world. It's wonderful to get such a reception to the new lines but needless to say, we've been busy throwing, hand-decorating and firing enough pieces to meet the demand.
On the ground floor of our shop - this blue cupboard is filled with our new pasta server and bowls which come in all our patterns.
We've also been busy working on a brand new website for Nicholas Mosse - we've been photographing all the products and new lifestyle images. For those of you who have been into our shop here, you know that we have textiles also for sale - so a selection of those will also be up on our website as well - oven mitts, tea cosies, napkins, aprons, jam jar covers, runners and place mats.
Pictured above, a selection of our oven mitts.

 Fabrics by the metre or yard will continue to be sold just here in our own shop.
 As I mentioned earlier, Fuchsia is doing brilliantly and the image above and below shows most of the new range.
We will continue to have a blog on our new website but it will be incorporated directly into the site and not hosted in blogger. If you are eager for new images and would like to comment or enjoy regular updates - please head over and LIKE our Facebook page. We are also on Twitter - @NicholasMosse if you are interested in following us there.

See you again soon, Lisa

Our New Ovenware Range isOnline

Our new ovenware range which has been selling in our own Irish Country Shop since before Christmas has been selling like hot cakes. For those of you that cannot visit us in Bennettsbridge, I'm happy to let you know that it is all up on our website now.
Available in 5 different shapes - it is the first range from Nicholas Mosse that can truly go from oven to table.

 I've been lucky enough to test out a few pieces at home - and I have to say one of the best things, other than all the wonderful patterns, is that it cleans beautifully! The other weekend I made up a few individual cottage pies for my family in the small square dish - seen here in Clematis.
 I don't know about you but to me it just makes serving a meal that bit more pleasurable.
Here are all the shapes in all the patterns. I also love the medium oval dish. It's perfect for roasting carrots and parsnips.

We have an offer on our website just through Valentine's Week- until Sunday, 19th February.
If you purchase €100 or more on pottery on our website, you will receive a FREE Hanging Heart ornament with your order. (Terms and Conditions apply).

Be sure to LIKE our Facebook page and if you  are on Twitter follow us there @NicholasMosse.
We always love hearing from our fans and collectors.
Until next time, Lisa

New at Nicholas Mosse Pottery for 2012

Happy Belated New Year to you all. January just flew by as we've all been busy not only decorating our new ranges - Fuchsia, ovenware and pasta bowls - but also selling them at our annual trade show. So my apologies on the delayed blog post.
Our Irish Country Shop has been selling the ovenware since mid- December and it's been flying out the door. Fuchsia is not out in the shop yet but will be in the next few weeks.

 Up in our seconds area on the 1st floor, there is a great offer on our discontinued Old Rose Cappucino cups and saucers - now reduced to €29.00. They have such generous proportions and are perfect for warming your hands on a chilly day.

Above, one of our decorators applies the Old Rose pattern to our Small Square Ovenware Dish. Our ovenware range is the first range that can go from oven to table. Available in 5 different shapes, it comes in all our standard patterns - which totals 7 now that we've added Fuchsia.

The pasta bowls and server have a wonderful shape and they are top on my list for new purchases in 2012. The proportions are perfect not only for pasta but salads, soups, stews and more.             
Do be sure to LIKE our Facebook page if you have not already and Nicholas Mosse is now on Twitter too - @NicholasMosse. You can see photos of Fuchsia up on our Facebook page but I'll be sure to add images here next week. 
As always, we love hearing from all our fans - so drop us a line or leave us a comment.
See you soon, Lisa
