Hello, welcome to Koleszar Pottery, my name is Hedwig Koleszar. I have been potting in the eastern section of the island for 36 years now, and I'd like to think that I have improved somewhat since then. The studio is nestled into the green hills of the Gairloch Road, so that I can hardly avoid being inspired by the beauty and sweetness of nature surrounding me. You can find me by following the blue and white government signs from Eldon for 11 km.
I enjoy working with porcelain, it's smooth and buttery, really a joy to throw. It lends itself perfectly to the delicate shapes that I love. To make a pot, this clay is centered, thrown into a graceful form, dried to a perfect consistency, trimmed and smoothed to shape, brushed with either subdued or warm colours on a cream background, and twice fired using only safe glazes.
You are invited to see this work in progress.
Please do wander in the lush gardens, a happy blend of the wild and the cultivated. Have a seat, and relax with a cup of tea. The antics of the Guinea fowl, ducks, and hens will amuse you. And while you are here, you might feed a flower to the mama goat and her frolicking kid.
You will leave refreshed. Enjoy your visit!
