WAYNE GALLOWAY CERAMICS

Wayne Galloway is a ceramic artist living and working in Crail, Fife. He has a particular interest in alternative firing techniques including horsehair and feather raku - resulting in delicate and unique markings. Feathers and horsehair are collected from local forests and stables. 

Wayne is interested in the ancient firing technique of pitfiring. He connects his work to the local environment by collecting driftwood and seaweed from the Crail shores to fuel his kilns. Each piece has dramatic surfaces, reminiscent of the brooding East Neuk seas. 

His most recent work explores the textures found on the boats in the Fife harbours, making reference to colours, markings and lettering. These playful designs are created using layers of textured slips and engobes. Wayne shows his work at galleries across Scotland and exhibits at selected events including Potfest Scotland, Pittenweem Arts Festival and selected Design Markets.
