The “Harray Potter’ as he is also known has been throwing pots in Harray, by Sandwick for over 30yrs. His beautiful functional pottery comes in a great assortment of shades, also often with historical designs based on Skara Brae artefacts. He is also a best-selling author whose latest book is published July 2020.
I love using Andrew’s pottery as it reflects food heritage but is also as practical today and very arty. The hues reflect nature and light with designs depicting his knowledge of local archaeological finds and his love of history. His studio is a delight to visit.
Andrew is also an accomplished novelist… Skara The First Wave, and Skara The Second Wave. Andrew Appleby’s novels in his Neolithic series, ‘New Life for Orkney’ is his latest. This epic conveys the raw richness of people’s lives in Neolithic times through a compelling quest to secure for the people of the Isles new blood from over the ocean.
