Time is flying by and before we know it the holidays and end of year celebrations will be here. I'm sure we all can't wait for that moment :)
As I write this message to you, my last glaze firing is on and I will be releasing my last shop update of 2023 on Wednesday 29th November at 7pm!
There will be some very special bowls and cups made with wild clays and slips that I was working on this year, similar to the autumn cups made with Edinburgh clay slip.
Recently I have been really enjoying making teapots and if kiln gods are good to me, then I will be thrilled to share these very special pieces with you.
So keep an eye out for the online shop update, but if you are an Edinburgh local, I would love to invite you to our Open Studios on Saturday and Sunday (2nd-3rd December) from 12-5pm.
Furthermore, there are two more chance to see me and my pots be at two Edinburgh markets;
Looking forward to seeing you either online or in person.
My dear friends,
I am so happy to let you know that this Thursday at 7pm I will launch my October 2023 shop update.
In this latest collection I have some special pieces that I am super excited to share with you - a collection of cups decorated with slip I made from local Edinburgh clay. I collected this clay in late spring this year and after a number of tests over the summer the final test finally resulted in a slip that is what I was aiming for. It fires to a beautiful deep red colour, very autumnal ❤️
The cups are available in three sizes and the brush strokes on the cups are made with hand made brushes I created from different types of dry grass I gathered in and around Arthur's seat in the heart of Edinburgh.
There will also be a small collection of Sandscape vases and tableware including soup bowls, olive dishes, pasta bowls and cups with and without handles.
The shop will stay open until the 9th December and I will be adding new pieces to the shop over the coming weeks.
I have some other wild clay limited edition pieces coming up, these will include a selection of pieces with clay from Orkney, West Highlands and other amazing places. So watch out for a reminder email some time in late November.
I hope you are enjoying these first days of autumn and I look forward to seeing you in my shop.
I am super excited to let you know that my Spring 2023 shop update will go live next Friday, 7th April. at 7pm.
Is you subscribe to my mailing list here, you will get an exclusive, 30min early bird access from 6.30pm.

My Winter 2022 pre-Christmas shop update is now live from my website (click here).
Hope you find little pieces of joy for yourselves and your loved ones for the upcoming festive season.
I wish you a very Merry Chritmas and a great start to 2023!
I am super excited to be sharing with you a little of what I have been up to over the past few months and some upcoming opportunities to see and purchase my latest work.
First of all, I will be launching my seasonal, pre-Christmas online shop update at 7 pm on Thursday, 1st December. As my loyal customers and subscribers, you will be given an exclusive 30min early bird access from 6.30 pm – watch out for the email. Due to the pre-Christmas dispatch and delivery deadlines, the shop will only be open for 10 days, until 11th December, or less (until the stocks last). As always the shop will be made live from my website.
In addition, this coming weekend (25th - 27th November), you can come and meet me and my work in person at the V&A Dundee. I am taking part in a small exhibition and market of the best of Scottish contemporary design. More info is here.
Finally, I have been invited as one of the emerging makers into a new conceptual store, Bard, in Leith. Its creators Hugo and James have travelled far and wide across the country to select the most interesting examples of creative practice – well worth a visit if you are nearby. You can see some of that work on their website.
In all, I hope you are all well and looking forward to perhaps seeing you either in-person or online over the coming weeks.
Either way, I wish you a very pleasant festive season and a great start to the new year!
I am delighted to share the Autumn 2022 Shop update, that will go live on Friday at 7pm and will stay open for about 4 weeks.
Hope you find some autumnal inspiration....
