Situated five minutes from Port Askaig on the road to Bunahabhain Persabus Pottery offers a unique setting in which to unwind and explore your creativity. We have a wide range of ceramics for sale. Each piece has been individually painted by hand and then glazed and fired on the premises, choose gifts from our own unique ranges which include the Josie poppy range, Lucy sea breeze range, Helen Happy Heart range and Rosie swirls. Inspiration for the pieces is drawn from the spectacular colours in the surrounding scenery. Visit the pottery blog for more details on our various pieces. Watercolour and oil originals and prints and handmade cards are also on sale.
At the pottery we also stock a wide range of ceramic bisqueware for our customers to paint, from plates and mugs to a variety of banks and animals. There is something for everyone and no experience is necessary. You can either paint pottery in acrylics and we will seal the finished item with varnish, or you can paint using under glaze and then we will dip the piece in glaze and fire it for you in our kilns. Glazed items can then be collected several days later from the pottery; items painted in acrylics can be taken home the same day. We welcome all ages. During busy times seating may be limited; if you wish to book a session, rather than just turning up, you can call us on 01496 840243.
