Carron Pottery, Craft Shop & Gallery

 

Carron Pottery is situated on the south shores of Loch Carron, one mile south from the Strathcarron Railway Station.  The building began as a School and Schoohouse built around 1860 and converted in 1976/77 by the previous potter and his wife Barry & Anne Jones.

Present owners Rob & Jan Teago bought the Pottery in the Autumn of 1992.

Rob is the potter and produces hand-thrown stoneware in the purpose built workshop to the rear of the shop. Rob makes domestic-ware and many specially commissioned pieces.  In November 2015 Rob & Jan were joined by their son Peter, bringing his modelling skills from cake making and cake decorating in the Restaurant next door easily transferable to clay. This added another dimension to the pottery, Peter makes amongst other things, spoons, boxes, butter dishes, coasters,tile pictures and wee animals as well as learning to throw.

The Craft shop is in the old Schoolroom, where you will find not only our pottery but also the very best of Scottish Crafts.  The range includes woodcraft – some local, jewellery from several different Scottish makers, silverware, other ceramics, excellent Scottish knitwear and much more besides, everything from a postcard to a wedding present.

Michelle, Peter’s wife has also joined the team as the shop manager and helps Jan in all aspects of the shop.

The Gallery upstairs is a lovely airy room with lots of natural light and was started in 1994.  We display paintings in a wide mix of styles and mediums from local and Scottish professional artists.

Amongst these are Ken Ferguson, Sophie Macpherson, Helen Robertson, Miriam Smith and print makers Michael Stuart Green and Kitty Watt.

There are prints, etchings, sculptures, wooden bowls, textiles, glass, ceramics, ironwork furniture, candle holders and fire-irons.
