Charly Hamlyn Ceramics

Charly Hamlyn Ceramics

As a ceramicist, Charly is inspired by the colours and forms she sees around her in the hills and coastline of our beautiful islands and by the wish to produce sustainable items that can be used and cherished for years.
She creates wheel-thrown stoneware for decorative and functional use – vases, bowls, mugs, jugs, small goblets and cups and also smaller, hand-built pieces including pendants. earrings, dishes and buttons.
Each piece is individually made and decorated in a variety of ways – turned, carved, impressed with leaves, flowers or Celtic stamps before having its first firing in the kiln. It is then further decorated with oxides and glazes, before having a second firing at a higher temperature. This finalises the journey of the clay from malleable earth to fixed form.
Charly is always happy to have visitors at her studio, 19 Crossbost, you are welcome to pop in for a chat or to buy something. Please message before making a special visit.

Tiger Textiles

Tiger Textiles

Alison’s artwork is inspired by her native Hebridean heritage, Gaelic culture and natural surroundings.

Using drawing and painting as her basis, she then works on embroidering lengths of fabric, often Harris Tweed, with designs that complement the cloth. Through delicately stitching Gaelic songs and poems in the tweed, she tells the story of where the cloth is from and promoting culture in a modern way.
