Hand built ceramics inspired by sunsets in over the West of Scotland's coastline. Slimline vases for a single stem. Wonky tactile pinched tea cups in matte black and egg shell blue. White pierced light spheres.
We are a small scale studio pottery based in the rural and remote area of the Scottish Borders called the Ettrick Valley.
We specialise in the production of handthrown and hand decorated functional stoneware ceramics. All the pots are hand thrown by Mark. The hand decorated range is designed and rendered free-hand by Elisabeth. All our work is high fired to cone 10, 1300oC.
My work celebrates the seductive beauty, purity and translucency of porcelain and bone china. I use these precious materials to create a range of jewellery as well as thrown functional work inspired by glimpses of natural wilderness found in urban environments. The work is tactile, individual and made to fit human hands.
London born, Emma Pattullo (nee Croker Poole) studied ceramics at Bristol (1990-93) before moving to Aberdeenshire in '94, where she now lives and works from her studio/gallery in Torphins.
Nothing can be more satisfying than creating a work of art from a piece of wood, it can be very therapeutic and rewarding. It is also nice to have a challenge, when asked to create something to a customers specification. The items I have created vary from Wooden Pens to Salt and Pepper sets.
I try to use native woods from Scotland such as Oak,Sycamore, Beech, and again if requested
will use other types.
