I have sent two new large wallhangings to Carron Pottery at Strathcarron in Wester Ross. As well as selling their own attractive and practical stoneware, they have a well stocked craft shop filled with Scottish-made goods of all sorts - including many of the products from Anna Macneil.
Upstairs they have a small art gallery featuring work by many local artists and it is in this space that my wallhangings are displayed. Over the years it has proved a successful venue for showing my one-off pieces of work.
The first piece is an intricate Celtic knotwork design in a teal blue Harris Tweed and measures approximately 40cm wide by 115 cm high. The second piece "Sunset on a Celtic Sea" combines hand made felt and Harris Tweed in rich deep reds with small details of red and gold metallics.
