Dragons and goblins to boats and seashore, 'smokey' incense burner boxes, sculptures and much more!

Beantighe are Pam and Alun Dyson. We are both part time potters with a love of creating with clay. We work from a studio in Banff, NE Scotland, overlooking our garden on the Moray Firth.

Pam is into fantasy. She sculptures mystical figures, dragons, goblins and strange beings. Her pieces are numerous and varied including ceramic dogs, jewellery, tiles and comical. Pam enjoys going into our studio with an open mind and accompanied by Miniature Schnauzer Anwyn. My creations are influenced by my surroundings, reading matter and the last film that I have watched!

Alun's work varies from ceramic boats to boxes with crossover into fantasy and pieces incorporating driftwood that is collected locally. His influence are from ‘life’, recent events and his observations of the environment. Alun also looks after the Beantighe glazing and firing from our own kilns.

We use sculpting clays and specialty glazes. All our items are made by Alun and Pam.

When you have a Beantighe ceramic item there is a dead cert it will be the only one in the world!
