One of John's principal aims in his work is to try to make pots that have not been made before. His pottery studio is a joy to visit, and his enthusiasm for his subject shines through. With his background in sculpture, his ceramics reflect his interest in form and texture and display a high degree of craftsmanship. This is a must visit studio.
I design and make slate signs and polymer clay jewellery.
The signs are made from reclaimed Scottish slate, hand engraved with your custom design before being painted and laquered to protect them.
Lots of sizes, styles and designs available - use for welcome signs, stable signs, garden signs, pet memorials or whatever your needs are.
I am a jewellery designer based in Glasgow. I am currently working on ranges of jewellery inspired by cities and what they mean to us. How will our future cities look?

Do we continue to aspire towards western riches and none existent money whilst being the big man's wage slave? Or is there another way?
