Amanda makes kiln formed glass vessels, playing with gravity in the kiln. Manipulating mass, heat, colour and time aiming to create complex, elusive work that has intense colour and pattern which reacts to the light it is placed in. Using opaque glass powders to construct her work because of its varying translucency as the form elongates during the firing process. The glass is finished using many cold working processes to shape and mark the glass including sandblasting, hand lapping, diamond point and wheel engraving.

Fursbreck Pottery, based in Orkney, is run by potter Andrew Appleby who produces hand thrown pottery.
Together over the years, husband and wife team have designed and produced a wide variety of hand made crafts. These have ranged from large wooden items such as garden furniture, dolls houses to smaller items such as clocks and candle holders.
Our speciality is designing and hand crafting jewellery boxes, ring and trinket boxes and medium sized memory boxes. All are made from reclaimed timber including oak, beech and mahogany. Marquetry veneers are used to decorate diamond and hexagonal shaped boxes.
I am based on the west coast of Scotland and I make hand built and hand thrown work in different clays. The concepts and designs for my work most often come from nature or myths.
Andy’s pots are wood fired stoneware and porcelain.

Her pieces are unique items inspired by smooth aesthetically pleasing lines and shapes that are then created into tactile and elegant jewellery.
Angela's plan is to keep developing ideas and to create an eclectic range of home and tableware that is fun, attractive and nostalgic.
