I first met Mandy Parslow at the Rufford Earth and Fire pottery festival a few years ago. She is a regular exhibitor at the UK's pottery festivals but was missing this year as she took time out to complete a masters degree.

Mandy set up Parslow Pottery in the beautiful Glen of Aherlow in County Tipperary 14 years ago, converting a derelict building into her home, pottery and showroom. She now uses a wood kiln with twin fireboxes and three gas fired kilns to produce her range of salt glazed stoneware.

She is open to visitors but it is best to phone or email her first to ensure that she will be there to greet you.
