Aaron Sterritt lives and works in Aviemore, within the Cairngorms National Park. He produces furniture and sculpture for local galleries and welcomes commission based work of any size.
Exclusively designed and handcrafted sterling silver and luxury gemstone jewellery - each piece a limited edition of just one.
Alan uses the sensual quality of fine silver to create sculptural pieces of silverware and jewellery. He textures the surface of his work with chasing.
Based on the shore of Loch Broom in the north west Highlands of Scotland, I design and make a range of framed collages and greetings cards which are also suitable for framing. I like to use my own handmade papers, Harris Tweed and other materials. I think of them as small mementos of the bigger picture.
Working from her Studio in Carrbridge, Alice Buttress, a Ceramic Artist and Sculptress, makes a wide range of handbuilt and thrown pottery, raku, sculpture, jewellery, and Chainsaw Carvings
Cutting the wood into thin slices, often across the grain reveals the maximum richness, I construct forms where the resultant sequence, is the focus in sculpture, featured in boxes and vessels or a detail in furniture. With an allusion to movement or softness I juxtaposition textures, colour and form, introducing with other joining materials the illusion of precariousness or tenuousness. I work functionally and creatively, speculatively and to commission, for private or commercial clients and galleries from the workshop which I established in 1984.

Primarily working in hand-built Raku fired vessel forms, Allison lives and works on the North West Coast of Scotland.
What makes her work unique is that before putting her ceramics in to the kiln, she shoots the un-fired clay with a twelve bore shotgun. This technique produces an effect that is impossible to recreate in any other way.
Her pieces show the damage a gun can cause on something that has taken time, effort and creativity to make, drawing parallels with the effects of gun crime and war on the lives of innocent people.
Nature is the inspiration for Amy Mackay. Building a home with love, care and exceptional skill with the materials available is a process continually undertaken by nature, for nature, all around us.
She wants to convey the beauty, intricacy and precious nature of these natural homes using precious and semi-precious materials such as silver and gold, creating both jewellery and decorative objects.
