A small selection of Alun's work
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's sculptures are figurative from local characters, dogs, jewellery to tiles, occasionally with a comical twist. I'm also into mystical figures, dragons, goblins and strange beings. All work uses sculpting clays and speciality glazes. My creations are influenced by my surroundings, reading matter and the last film that I have watched!
Alun is a straight line sort of potter creating slab-work pieces that develop into ceramic boats and fantasy pieces incorporating driftwood collected locally. During lockdown he has created some ceramic tractors influenced by a visit to Turriff Show. Also steampunk models: not certain where this influence came from!
Alun also looks after the Beantighe glazing and firing from our own kilns. We use sculpting clays and specialty glazes.
When you have a Beantighe ceramic item there is a dead cert it will be the only one in the world!
WE ARE OPEN BY APPOINTMENT OUTSIDE OF NEOS. Please use Contact section of web site.
Part of our sales income is donated to Deveron District Age Concern.
