Spotlight on the Gallery Shop

Raku pottery originated in Japan in the 16th century.  Over the last 50 years in the western world, the process has metamorphosed in to a very different but exciting and beautiful process.  Grimsby artist Lisa Skog creates not only one-of-a-kind dishes, but she also incorporates Raku in to clocks, wall art and jewellery.

Please note that Raku fired ware is porous and generally unsuited for functional use.  It should be treated as a decorative art piece and as such should not be placed in the dishwasher or be exposed to direct sunlight or very high humidity.
