Rob Sutherland is a potter living and working in the beautiful Scottish Borders.
"All of my ceramics are hand-built and utilise the technique of coiling. This involves building a pot layer by layer. Each coil is melded into the coil below and is pinched, squeezed, moulded and scraped into shape. I enjoy the slow pace of this method which allows a considered response to the form as it grows".
"My influences are grounded in nature, from deciduous woodland to fossil encrusted pebbles. The surface textures are inspired by patterns in nature be it the annual growth rings of lichens, ripples in water or the raked gravel oceans and rivers of Zen Buddhist dry gardens of Japan."
Workshop and shop situated in the grounds of Traquair House.
