Tyrii Pottery

Further information

The Pots

Influenced by the many colours of Tiree, Jean and Helen's earthenware pottery is slipped and decorated which allows them to achieve vibrant colours. Each piece is decorated by hand, with a large variety of designs inspired by their surroundings. Hares, lobsters, oystercatchers, wagtails, mackerel and seals are a few of the many Tiree creatures that find their way onto their pots.

All of the pots are hand-made either thrown on the potter's wheel, coiled or slab built. Shapes and designs are ever changing; many pieces are one off while others are complete ranges. The pots are twice fired in electric kilns to a final temperature of 1090°C making the finished ware suitable for oven use.
