Welcome to Salix Pottery & Gallery
Wenna Crockatt has been exhibiting and selling her unique ceramic pieces in galleries throughout Scotland for many years. Her studio, incorporating Salix Pottery & Gallery, is located on the unspoilt North Aberdeenshire coast, close to the picturesque villages of Pennan and Crovie.
Poetry by Ian Crockatt
Salix Pottery & Gallery retains the character of the converted steading in which it is situated. It is small, but shows a good range of Wenna's high quality ceramics, as well as some of her paintings and prints. We will also shortly be featuring original photographs by Laura Crockatt, Ian and Wenna's daughter.
We hope that when browsing this site you will get a sense of the stimulating and original work on view.
Wenna's husband Ian Crockatt is a poet and translator, and the gallery has copies of Ian's books for sale. See the 'poetry' page for details, and examples of his poems.
Salix Publications in the past displayed examples of cards and prints we had designed.
Recently we have published a booklet of poems and visual images called DAWN WALK.
Profits from sales of this collaboration will go to Scottish PEN, an organization which, as part of PEN International, promotes literature and champions freedom of speech throughout the world.
SALIX PUBLICATIONS may publish other collaborative ventures involving poetry and visual images in the future.
