Name: Marc Fraser

Medium:Stoneware & Porcelain Ceramic Tableware

Marc Fraser established his pottery in 1991 in a 17th Century thatched barn. Here he produces a wide range of thrown stoneware and porcelain. A fascination with glazes coloured with oxides of copper and cobalt provide a variety of blues and greens, particularly suited to domestic and decorative pots.

The simple thrown forms are enhanced by double-dipping and overlapping of glazes which create a unique surface decoration on each piece. Coloured slips and the addition of wax resist give further dimensions to the final effect.

All of the work is microwave and dishwasher proof.

Traditional craftsmanship linked to contemporary design have led to the production of beautiful and practical pots, to be used and enjoyed.

Marc was pleased to discover the Artists’ Town of Kirkcudbright, as it is a couple of miles from his father’s birthplace at Twynholm. Visiting this part of Scotland has brought back happy childhood memories of holidays spent on the South West Coast.
