Ian Murdoch

Ian Murdoch

Ian's pots are made from red earthenware/terracotta clay painted and decorated with a variety of coloured slips and biscuit fired to 1120C in an electric kiln. They are then glazed with a clear earthenware glaze and fired again to 1060C.


Ian is attracted to the combination of greens and yellows, and blues and whites on the surface of the painted work, hoping that the designs catch the eye and flow and sit naturally with the shape and form of the pots themselves.


He is based near Blainslie in the Scottish Borders and has been making pots and running classes for adults and children for over twenty years.
