Amanda designs and makes kiln formed and cameo engraved glass for architectural, interior and sculptural settings.
Current inspiration includes looking at botanicals used in the pharmaceutical industry and plants which are toxic, linking to my first Pharmacology degree, and continuing to exploit the properties of gravity within the kiln whilst making unique vessels.
A wide range of handpainted pottery made in-situ. Patterns range from beautiful cobalt blues and copper greens to fun and unique animal and bird designs. Whether you prefer highly glazed or more 'natural' finishes - I have both. Both ornamental pieces and domestic crockery available. Ability to see pottery in its various stages of production. Other locally made crafts also available.
Contemporary wheel-thrown ceramics.
ANDEEZARTINWOOD (formally known as Woodland Craft, was founded by Andrew Moore in Meigle, Perthshire, 1986), produces handcarved Scottish wildlife subject matter, carved mirrors, naturally shaped burr bowls and many other carved works to supply retail outlets throughout Scotland, England and at craft shows and direct mail order. Love spoons, unusual kitchenware and I am adding wooden jewellery as from 01/01/2013.
I work with bone china clay combined with paper to create vessels which are each unique yet compliment each other as a series of works. Some vessels contain glass which is cast directly inside the piece - emulating liquid contained within the form. These works have a quiet, contemplative quality, particularly when viewed as groups or installations.
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.
