Ronnie’s new work is a departure from the seafaring characters and images he loves and is well known for. He lives in East Lothian, and says ‘when Riding around small C roads and B roads on my motorbike I am amazed at the colours and ever-changing vista of the landscape, the seasons and especially corrugated iron sheds, barns, ramshackle farms and dilapidated tractors.’

The results are striking depictions in clay of these places, and the detail is best seen up close. Tractors peep out of sheds with old tin roofs rendered beautifully with a muted pallette, and we also have some comical raku fired hens full of character, some living in their own little sheds, brightly glazed and complete with straw!
