A bit about me...
My name's Emma, I'm the being behind all of these crafts. No doubt I'm off wandering around somewhere but I potter away making all the ceramics and historically inspired cra you see here and think far too much about iron and mossy groves. Think of me as your friendly neighborhood hobbit/ hermit.
I am fascinated by the scientific but also by stories, myths and symbolisms, espeically to do with technologies involving fire and transformations, eg. ceramics and iron working.
All this crafting has always been and always will be a huge part of who I am. Luckily my family are crafty and my dad is even a trained potter, but it's only in the last few years that I've spent time at the wheel with him to learn. Turns out clay is great stuff!
With a background in crafts, experimental archaeology and heritage education, and a life spent globetrotting, my main inspirations are the past and nature and everything inbetween. Luckily that inspiration is easy to come by here amongst the hills and lochs of Perthshire, Scotland: a land of red squirrels, kelpies, prehistoric rock art, age old trees and the Cailleach. So feel free to browse my works, all made with slow intention and a story built in.
