Established in 1975. from small beginnings at the back of the Mishinish Hotel in the Main Street. The business has grown over the years with our Pottery, Gallery & Restaurant situated at Baliscate Estate with views over looking the Sound of Mull and our shop in the Main Street.
Peter Walker aka Pete the pot, studied art and ceramics at Glasgow School of Art and spent time in Japan learning different techniques.
The pottery is made by skilled craftspeople and all pieces are hand thrown only, making each piece unique. We make all of our own glazes and our clay for which the recipe has been developed in 1982 using white stoneware porcelain. It is fired to a very high temperature of 1290°C in a carefully controlled kiln atmosphere which eliminates porosity. The robust nature and quality of this recipe allows the entire range to be used in microwaves, ovens, freezers and dishwashers

The Gallery stocks a complete range of our products, an array of seconds at bargain prices, as well as a large selection of other Scottish craftspeople’s work including ceramics, turned wood, glass, stone, and original paintings and limited edition prints of local and Scottish landscapes.

There is no prettier port in the west of Scotland than Tobermory, crowned the best place in Britain and Ireland at the prestigious 2011 Urbanism Awards. Tobermory Mull's main village, which is set on the side of a steep hill in a wooded, sheltered bay. The brightly painted houses that line the harbour front date from the late 18th century when the British Fisheries Society built Tobermory as a planned herring port. It never really took off as a fishing port, however, and nowadays you're more likely to see pleasure yachts anchored in the protected waters of the natural harbour. Lying at the bottom of the harbour is a galleon of the Spanish Armada, which sank in mysterious circumstances, along with its treasure of gold doubloons which has eluded salvage crews ever since. Tobermory is the only Highland town to have a Womble named after it. Along with the Womble connection Tobermory has also starred in Balamory, and in the Movies Madam Sin and When Eight Bells Toll.
