Janet Adam's wheelthrown stoneware and porcelain covers a wide scale of form, size and function. A small range of traditional domestic ware is included alongside more decorative yet functional pieces. Delicate porcelain bowls and vases, abstract-patterned wall-plates, plant and flower containers, jugs and large pitchers are all made as "one-off" items. Frost-proof garden urns and planters are on a larger scale.
The Pottery, established in 1979, produces handthrown, woodfired, decorated, domestic earthenware and a wide range of individual pots.
The decorative style is based on nature, largely fish and bird designs. I use sgraffitto, slip trailing and tin glaze decorating techniques. Tile murals are a large part of the production and can be made-to-order.

A Wee Bit of Light Relief is a collaborative venture by three Edinburgh based makers. Their practise as individuals straddles a variety of disciplines – Julia trained as a textile artist, Clare as a sculptor and Rebecca as a ceramicist.
Their flagship piece is the eponymously titled ‘A Wee Bit of Light Relief’; a range of chandeliers in different sizes and configurations consisting of household objects, delicately cast in low relief, white, Bone China.
Julia throws and hand-builds simple forms and decorates them with subtle glazes. Intricate hand drawn images are printed on the glazed surfaces and patterned decals are playfully used to create her unusual range of everyday use ceramics.
The spirit of my earthenware slip cast pots derives from the freedom that this process allows.
