Michelle Butler Ceramics


Michelle Butler is a Design Graduate of the Falmouth School of Art, Cornwall. She specialised in ceramics and since graduating, has developed a style which reconciles primitive, Celtic and ethnic influences with contemporary designs and forms.


Michelle Butler Ceramics was founded in December 1998 at the Omagh Enterprise Centre.

In August 2005 the business moved to a stone barn close to the Sperrin mountains which is now called Sperrin Ceramics Studio.

Michelle’s stoneware ceramics have developed a style which reconciles primitive Celtic influences with contemporary designs and forms. The pieces are all hand built using a textured stoneware clay and are finished with a rich metallic oxide. A large variety of glazes are used to give colour in small areas of pattern and relief on the pieces.  Each piece is individually handmade and creates a rustic, almost earthy ambiance, making it a unique gift from Ireland.

The ranges include Celtic Stone, Ironstone and Jewellery.  These are available in outlets throughout Ireland and abroad.  Also available in the Ironstone range are larger pots which are coil built and hand carved.  These are unique one off pieces as they take many hours to complete and can be purchased directly from the Studio.
