creative cairngorms : pottersPottery

Despite a brief preference for glass, metal, wood and horn vessels in the dark ages, native hand-made pottery has used in Scotland since prehistoric times.

Earthenware, stoneware, porcelain – everything starts off with the potter shaping clay by hand building, ‘throwing’ on a potter’s wheel or pressing it into a mould. The clay is then dried, turned and biscuit-fired before being decorated and glazed and fired once more to increase strength, set the shape, and harden.

This tradition continues in and around the Cairngorms National Park. From jewellery to milk jugs; garden pots to teapots; raku-fired vessels to hand painted tiles and much more – you will find our members’ work intriguing, appealing and useful.
