We are firing up for Christmas! We have so many lovely new things coming out of the kiln all the time, so please come along for a browse. Our gallery shop will be open as usual with extra Sunday hours from 12pm to 4pm in December. Such a wide range of pots this year, from wee cups (from £6) to big art pieces. Plenty under £20. We look forward to welcoming you!
Some of our recent work:
High Quality Handthrown Stoneware
At The Meadows Pottery in Edinburgh’s Southside (we are close to the Summerhall arts venue) we offer a wide range of the highest quality traditional pottery and contemporary ceramics in handthrown stoneware, with prices from £2 to over £1500. We accept commissions and we are always keen to discuss the possibilities with you. Everything is made by us, by hand. We are pleased to be able to tell you that we are now suppliers to the Michelin starred No.1 restaurant at the Balmoral Hotel.
We are privileged to have been working with the extraordinary young photographer Iga Gozdowska. Please look at the page Photos by Iga Gozdowska to see some of the wonderful results.
Here are some other pieces, mostly made this year.
From the beginning we have focused on supplying customers directly with reasonably priced, high quality stoneware that is warm, simple and easy on the eye.
With the distinctive range of glazes we’ve developed over more than twenty years, everything from a simply glazed bowl to a highly decorated piece is created with the same care and consideration.
We are interested to know what you think of our pots and what you would like us to make. We benefit from many returning customers who have grown to know our wares over the years, some building up there own sets of ware for the home, or finding us a good source of successful gifts for friends and family. We make sure we keep a wide price range of wares on sale, with plenty of items selling for under £20. We make pots for all sorts of purposes, from the more usual mugs, jugs, bowls, vases, and teapots to colanders, goblets, garlic pots, saltcrocks, candleholders, cheesebells and planters, even the occasional gallon sized teapot! Everything is handthrown on the potter’s wheel, on the premises, by us.
Apart from the porcelain, everything is high-fired oxidised stoneware, fired in an electric kiln to Cone 10, which is around 1300 degrees Celsius. We hope our pots give something to the user, from the comfort of a curved form with a calming glaze, to the reassurance that comes from knowing a thing has been well made using the highest quality materials.
