The Saligo Range captures one of Rosemary’s favourite coastlines on Islay. It has rugged, wild beaches, where the Atlantic rollers come crashing in over the sand and rocks. This range is filled with the vibrant blues and turquoises of the sea, the white horses on the waves with glints of yellow sand. We hope that you enjoy this range and that wherever you are it brings a little bit of Islay into your day.
The Port Bhan Range is named after a small sandy cove, just past the village of Bruichladdich. This bay is ideal for swimming in the warmer months.
The colours in this design capture a day in May. Inspiration and creativity flowed in the pottery after a beautiful and bracing swim. The turquoise sea and the rocks blooming with sea pinks. This beautiful island provides so much inspiration. I hope the Port Bhan Range breathes a bit of island life into your day…happy days xx
The Lucy Sea Breeze Range, inspired by the colours’ of Islay’s spectacular coastline, and named after Lucy, who commissioned pieces from the range for her mainland art gallery and coffee shop.
Pringle the Highland Cow Range initially began as two highland cow mugs commissioned by a lovely couple from the Netherlands. Pringle was one of the special ladies on the farm, a beautiful Highland cow, who loved attention and a good back rub if you were passing. Pringle was the muse for the original design. The range is very loved and the other year a whole ‘herd’ of Pringles went over to New York, in the form of a dinner service. The range continues to grow and includes ‘Whisky coos’ who are multi coloured Pringles and we have ‘Pringle the Cool Coo’ in her sunglasses…enjoy!
Josie Poppy is named after Rosemary’s lovely mum and inspired by all of the poppies Rosemary managed to grow in every flower bed around the farm. For a few years poppies flourished everywhere on Persabus.
The Valinda Tartan Range is named after Rosemary’s lovely late mother in law, Valinda. She loved all things tartan and ran the pottery in the late 1970s and 80s. This range is a tribute to a very fine lady.
Kate’s Purple Heather captures the essence of Islay’s heather clad hills, the purples, violets, blues, and greens set amongst moody grey skies and was inspired by a photograph taken by Kate.
The Helen Happy Heart Range was a bit of fun inspired by the special place Islay holds for Rosemary, having moved here to be with her Happy Farmer. It is named after a favourite childhood doll, Helen Happy Heart.
The Misty Isle Range, was inspired by autumn on Islay and the beautiful panoramic view that unfolds when you step outside the pottery. The colours and shades capture the essence and vibrancy of an autumnal day on the island last year.
