Ceramic & Pottery Community

Below is a selection of artists whose work I find beautiful and inspirational. Please click on the links to go to their pages.

Lotte Glob
Lotte is a Danish Ceramist living and working on the North West coast of Scotland for the past 50 years. Influenced by her continuing and intense relationship with the landscape, her work is represented in private collections worldwide and in museums in Scotland, England and Denmark.

Northshore Pottery
Jenny Mackenzie Ross studied Fine Art and Sculpture at Newcastle University but now lives and works in Caithness, Scotland where she creates her thrown form table wear, architectural ceramics and sculptures. The rugged and beautiful landscape of Northeast Scotland forms the basis of her inspiration.

Vicky Shaw
There are two strands to Vicky’s work, which in some ways are quite opposite, one being about precision and control and the other a much more freer form of expression. A member of Contemporary Applied Arts in London, Vicky has exhibited and lectured across the world from Scotland to Japan.

Anna Whitehouse
A fascination in marks of erosion and an on-going exploration of tactile objects fuels the making of ceramic artist Anna Whitehouse. From scrambling over rocks in the Dales to scouring the beach for fossils near Whitby, these experiences can be seen echoed in her work. Anna creates beautiful and intriguing objects that celebrate stolen moments of observation and inquisitiveness.
