We try to live a different kind of life; simpler, more sustainable and more creative.
We make things from clay; pots, pictures, sculptures. Much of our work uses original poetry - all under the name of seatree argyll. Michaela does most of the pottery and Chris writes the poetry and works with wood. Alongside all this, we keep chickens and grow food. The land our house is built on runs down into an area of ancient woodland. Inspiration for what we make is never far away. We are based on the Cowal peninsula, blessed with wild seascapes, mountains, forests and beautiful empty beaches. For us, art is essentially a process of engagement with spirituality (by which we mean the undefinable beautiful beyond) and this area has a rich heritage of others making their own spiritual journeys. We also run classes and workshops for those who want to get their hands on some clay or play with words. We completed our first solo exhibition (entitled ‘Where the Streams Come from’) in 2018 at the beautiful Tighnabruiach Gallery and have since participated in a number of other exhibitions. We also work with galleries up and down the country.
