Rob Mulholland, a contemporary Scottish artist based in Stirlingshire, Scotland, has created this unique collection of hand crafted metal bowls. Each piece is individually coloured and patterned by applying heat over the surface of the metal. A full range of his work is available in galleries throughout the U.K.
The pottery is in an extension at the back of the Craft Shop where on most days you can see Rob working: pugging clay, throwing a pot on the wheel, glazing or packing a kiln. This is a working pottery specializing in hand thrown, oven to tableware and commissioned pieces. The decoration consists of glazes in blues, greens, browns, oatmeal and white in various combinations to give a wide range of choice. Our pottery is used and is exclusive to our Restaurant next door.
