Specialists in both woodfired and salt glazed pottery. / / Our handmade stoneware tableware and individual ceramics are both functional and decorative. Our work is greatly influenced by the sea, landscape and wildlife of Skye. / / The making processes - throwing, turning, glazing, decorating, firing, etc may be seen at different times. / / The pottery is in wooded grounds at the head of Loch Greshornish, 100 metres off the A850, 14 miles from Portree, and 8 from Dunvegan and 48 from the Skye Bridge. It was started by Stuart Whatley and his late father Len in 1971. Stuart now works with two other potters. The pots are once fired, to 1,300 °C; in a 60 ft3 woodfired kiln. They also have great fun with a 12 ft3 gas fired salt glaze kiln.
