Contemporary crafts feature strongly at Tolquhon Gallery. A regular wide ranging stock complements a changing exhibition programme of selected work by Scottish and British makers. Ceramics, Glass and Wood can always be seen; Jewellery, Automata, Basketware and Metalwork can be seen in special exhibitions.
Ceramics comprise a huge range of art from functional studio pottery to fine sculptural forms. We exhibit a wide range at Tolquhon and there are always ceramics in stock.
We regularly exhibit studio glass by leading makers—blown glass, fused glass and stained glass.The ancient technique of blown glass, where a glassblower works at a furnace full of molten glass, has a magical appeal.
We exhibit turned, carved and painted wood from decorative bowls to sculptural forms. Wonderfully creative artists work with the form and grain of wood to bring pieces to life.
Contemporary jewellery by skilled Scottish makers, from anodised aluminium to fine silver.
