|Here on Orkney we have all around us the Viking Sea! Our surrounding oceans have never been a barrier. They have always been our roads and paths across the currents, with the winds and surf. Our Norse ancestors wove a rich history here. The strong Viking traditions still prevail. The recently instigated St Magnus Way is a testament to their changing history and culture at the forefront of their civilisation. We live in similarly paradigm-shifting times, having to accept upturns in all our expectations.|
But let me relieve you of some of the torment. Here’s the Harray Potter’s Viking Sea range, which illustrates the Ocean Roads perfectly. The blue waves over a surf coloured glaze, emulate the challenging marine environment that the Vikings ruled over. Regard… Here we have a large teapot, soup bowls, dessert/breakfast dishes with Sigrid’s home-baked biscuits. Round hygge, cuddly mugs and business-like straight mugs. A milk jug and a sweet nightlight for the latter hours.
If you want to join hands with Orkney, Scandinavia and our changing histories, you can find these fine items on our website: www.orkneypottery.co.uk . Go to “Shop Online” and click on the Viking Sea range.
Below, if you wanted a souvenir, a memory, something to hold from Orkney, here’s an Orkney mug at £17.95 and a dish at £12.50. These items aren’t on my website, however, you can email me with a request on firstname.lastname@example.org Your custom will really help in this awkward epoch.
Keep well and with all good wishes, Andrew, the real Harray Potter.
