'PINK CAUSEWAY' Soap Dish by Fiona Shannon Ceramics
This Pink Causeway Soap Dish is handmade and hand-painted by award winning local ceramicist Fiona Shannon. Created in the nearby town of Portstewart, the design on the soap dish takes inspiration from Frankie Creith's original acrylic painting 'Pink Causeway' and is part of a new collaboration between Frankie and Fiona.
The painting Pink Causeway features the UNESCO World Heritage Site The Giant's Causeway which is located on the north coast of Ireland. The unusual basalt rock formation is the result of an ancient volcanic eruption and is the only site in Northern Ireland with world heritage status.
Please note that as all soap dishes are hand made and hand painted each one is unique. The images are intended as a guide.
