We believe that good design matters.


Thomas Diem is a second generation designer and potter. Born in NYC but living in Ireland since he was a child, his first taste of pottery came in his own father’s studio. Having spent time perfecting his craft, Thomas established his own studio in 1997. The studio, situated beside his home in Ashbourne Co. Meath, is where all the pieces are designed and made by hand. It is here, that over time, Thomas has pared back his style to a truer simpler form.


“At diem pottery we believe that the objects we use have a great effect on our lives. We design and create by hand, pieces that combine traditional skills with a contemporary design edge. Our aim is to create simple, beautiful things that enhance daily life.”
