At Sea Drift Pottery I make small batch handmade ceramics, thrown on the pottery wheel in stoneware clay and made to be used everyday.
I was given the gift of two pottery wheel lessons 14 years ago I have been playing in clay ever since. I'm always learning and developing my work. It's been a journey, not just in practicing my skills but finding the right place to work and grow. To begin I worked between home and friend's shared pottery cellar, then I finally moved into my own studio space at Holy Loch Marina in Sandbank, Argyll. It's a friendly and creative space surrounded by hills, the sea and plenty boats; the ideal situation to inspire handmade pottery. I make all my ceramic work here and hold small classes and workshops to gve others the experience of creating in clay.
The studio is open to visitors while I am working. I may be throwing pots or up to my elbows in glaze but you are welcome to come in! You can come along and find out more about workshops or ask questions and see a demo on throwing. Or just pop in for a nosey! There is also a small range of my pottery for sale at the studio.
Where You Can Buy
You can buy my work online and locally in a variety of Scottish art studios and galleries.
