Based in Argyll, Pauline Beautyman makes small batch handmade ceramics, thrown on the pottery wheel in stoneware clay and made to be used everyday. The pottery is created to be used and enjoyed every day around the home.
Pauline is inspired by the features and colours of Argyll, Scotland where she lives.From trees, hills and rugged shorelines to smooth sandy beaches and turquoise water, this corner of the country has plenty to offer any artist. By creating her own glazes and and layering up slips and scratching through clay, she develops ceramics that to her speak of home.
“I need to create work that will be used everyday. Simplicity of shape, well made with intention is important to me. My glazes must reflect my love of the outdoors and the layers of colour and texture I experience, so I try to reflect in my pottery.”
