Highland Stoneware pottery is situated in the North-West Highlands of Scotland where each piece is handmade and hand painted by a dedicated team of craftspeople in Lochinver and Ullapool. Highland Stoneware was formed in 1974 by David Grant while studying at the Royal College of Art in London. You can see their collections of practical Giftware, Tableware and Cookware in their online shop or you can commission special pieces made to order. You can find them at www.highlandstoneware.com.
A beautiful collection of fine hand crafted and hand painted porcelain pieces produced from start to finish on the Isle of Arran in Scotland depicting wildlife on and around the Island itself. In the early nineteen seventies Alastair Dunn (who designed some of the Highbank Animal Figures) began producing porcelain miniatures on Arran and now with the current owner, Vivienne Coulthard, Island Porcelain continues to produce a growing range of ornamental ceramic figures. The figures are unique and affordable gifts for friends and loved ones of any age, each one comes with its own attractive gift box. You can find them at www.islandporcelain.com.
Tom Mackie produced many of the sculptures that were used to create the Animals range so deserves special mention on this page.
Tom has lived in the Scottish Highlands since 1968 and now lives within the Cairngorm National Park. He has made models since he was 5 years old and it is his love of wildlife that inspired him to make sculptures professionally.
As well as sculpting the wildlife of many countries, he has also modelled a wide range of subjects, from sport and countryside figures to almost every breed of dog. It is his attention to detail and the ability to capture the characteristics of each subject that gives his sculptures such wonderful action and makes them unique. Today Tom creates his own designs and has them cast in real bronze in a local foundry. You can find him at www.tommackiefineartbronze.co.uk
