Collection: Belleek Baskets

Belleek Pottery's long running tradition of basket weave was introduced by William Henshaw in 1867 and carries on to this day.  The Celestial Basket has been inspired by the Sun and the Moon; the duality and balance they bring , their vital importance and the ancient Irish knowledge of this. The Newgrange monument, County Meath, was designed so the passageway and chamber are aligned and the Sun shines into the chamber in the morning during the winter solstice. The 'Calender Stone', located at Newgrange's sister site Knowth, is a large kerb stone depicting crescent and full moon shapes believed to be mappings of lunar cycles.
