The old Methodist Church in Whitehills is where you will find a unique pottery and gallery run by Fiona Duckett.
At Watergaw Ceramics there is a wide range (both domestic and decorative) of special ceramics produced on the premises and featuring Fiona’s unique take on ‘in glaze lustre’ glazes that are her own recipe.
Her ceramics are inspired by the reflective colour and shape of water and the Moray Firth Coast provides inspiration daily. Visitors can experience the pottery in action, and are welcome to browse the gallery/shop area that is part of the working pottery.
In glaze lustre is iridescent like oil on water or a peacock’s feather and when you are making this kind of glaze you are said to be chasing the rainbow. Watergaw is ancient scot for a partial or incomplete rainbow.
