“See the blue and white plate in the middle there? That’s by Barbara McIvor. She studied in Japan and has been making ceramics in the years since. Barbara is a great example of an artist who also exhibits; she will give a full collection to a gallery and all her loyal customers who have been buying for years will come and buy 10 of her pieces in one go. She still exhibits, but has always stocked been in gallery shops.” The striped pieces are by Chela for her ceramics brand Takeawei.
