This super studio is part of the small croft community at the Old Byre over on the west coast of Aran. A scenic drive from the ferry, or all you budding cyclists can get fit of course - just make sure you have a basket on your bike to carry back your pottery purchases! There is Cafe Thyme here too so a perfect wee round trip. Simon's ceramics are creative and colourful, decorative and practical. He reflects the sea and landscapes in natural and vibrant colours. My only problem was deciding what to go for!

Tain pottery has long been part of our dinner service at home. I firmly believe goodmeatballs1medium.jpg artisan food deserves lovely plates and such artistry as Robert's and his team gives me great pleaure to use and display. 

His hand-painted ceramics reflect nature and Scotland: animals, flowers, tartan,  and poetry in vibrant shades and delicate pastels - undoubtedly you will find something you love from the incredible range in his lovely studio.

Also available online and in stockists so click on link.

Such a pleasure to spot a pottery sign, turn off the road for but a moment, and see such an enticing studio! Inside Sue is at work and her showroom is bathed in light. She has her ceramics, handthrown in Hebridean hues, beautifully displayed alongside other artists' jewelry and gifts - all either local or inspired by artists visiting the Hebrides. There are lovely individual pieces and customers can also order up a dinner service.
