I am a ceramic artist designing functional and sculptural artworks‚ hand-painted tiles & commemorative wares to commission. I am happiest expressing my ideas through clay, creating richly coloured‚ decorative and tactile pieces of ceramics, which combines and plays with the functional boundaries and sculptural concepts.  Situated in the North East of Scotland in the beautiful surroundings of Royal Deeside, I find an abundance of inspiration for creating my ceramics and artwork.

FM4. Birds in the Woods 3 small pots max height 12   £75 for set

Work is white porcelain some with Oxides, some with printed paper.  I am influenced by place and time and often use textures from nature and man made objects found at a specific place on a visit with my porcelain clay, boards and a rolling pin.  I like the immediacy of the process and being out “on site” is one of the pleasures of this way of working.  I try to look at the textures of everything – cliffs, flowers and leaves but also cigarette butts and flattened tin cans if that is what I see! They all form the texture and experience of that place and time!

Stoneware is an excellent material with which to make practical pots. It’s hardwearing qualities when combined with reduction firing allow you to produce very varied and individual work. It is important to remember that the pots we use every day should be every bit as interesting and pleasant to handle as those we keep on the shelf.

We have been in business as Northumbrian craft pottery for twenty one years producing mainly sprig ware and functional pottery all hand thrown. We have recently however {perhaps slightly overdue} afforded ourselves time to experiment with porcelain and produce pieces more suitable for galleries under our own names Harding & Palmer. As we fire to high temperature with a reduction atmosphere we felt it would be fun to play about with some rich copper red and celadons with copper blush. We hope you feel that the results are appealing.

Mixed media artist-maker, Kirsty O’Connor currently works in clay and paper –making voluptuous pots and unique books. These are very different disciplines but she approaches them in a similar way allowing the materials to dictate her direction.  The areas she is exploring include: the great mother; female sexuality; what we are doing to the earth; altered states and the artist as shaman.  Her smoke-fired figurative vessels are created in honour of the great goddess and her myriad aspects as celebrated in different cultures.

I am a self employed artist in Findhorn, working from home.  My inspiration: ~Nature in general, -animals, plants, the shapes of pebbles at the beach ~Native american pueblo pottery. I love natural, unglazed finishes, and the unpredictable beauty of the marks left by the fire, experimenting also with smokefirings and raku.   I make coilpots, animal figurines, mosaics, and thrown ware. I have exhibited my work over the last 8 years in different places in Scotland.

VBu1 FROSTED FOREST VASE handbuilt stoneware with crystalline glaze    45cm tall     £84

VBu2 ANCIENT SEAS FRUIT PLATE handbuilt stoneware with crystalline glaze  35cm across £72

The solidity of ancient buildings and the patina of old stone – the play of light and shade and the subtle effects of camouflage.  These influences are the starting point for Val’s large handbuilt pieces finished in natural slips and microcrystalline glaze.  Val’s work is entirely contemporary and practical, despite being made in historic Culross in Fife.
