These amazing handmade fried egg plates are coming to an outdoor market near you
They’d make a cracking gift.
A local photographer is celebrating her first foray into pottery with a fun collection of handmade fried egg plates that will be available to buy at an upcoming market.
Egle Laukyte is well known for her beautiful photography work and her business Artisan Chronicles, but next weekend she’ll be joining other local artists and potters on the Shandon Art Studios stall at STAMP Festival of Creativity, which returns to Cork City from May 19th to 21st, 2023.
The market will feature a wealth of local makers, taking place on the Counting House plaza outside South Main Street’s handsomely restored Beamish & Crawford building.
A jam-packed weekend is in store, with over 50 free and ticketed art, design and craft events, exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations, screenings, and the market, all in one extraordinary venue – The Counting House, in the heart of Cork city.
“I entered the pottery world right before the pandemic and very quickly it became my passion,” Egle told Yay Cork.
“I was super lucky to have an opportunity to dig deeper during lockdown and actually it saved my sanity as the weddings were all canceled and I had no income. I was making funky plates, cups, soap dishes, and other pieces, they were fast selling online, and that kept me going.
“All my pieces are handmade, using clay and food-friendly glazes. It takes lots of time, but I simply love the process.”

“I never want to be serious while creating, we all need a bit more fun in our life and I believe drinking your coffee from a cool cup or placing your sandwich in a funky egg shape plate can make the day a bit brighter.
“These simple plates and cups are supposed to put a smile on one’s face.”
