WE ARE VERY SORRY TO SAY THAT OUR NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOUR HAD A VERY BAD FIRE ON 8th AUGUST AND WE HAVE SUFFERED SOME EFFECTS. FORTUNATELY THERE APPEAR TO BE NO SIGNIFICANT INJURIES, DESPITE THE FORCE OF THE BLAZE. DUE TO ONGOING “MAKING SAFE” WORK AND REPAIRS etc, WE ARE UNABLE TO GAIN PROPER ACCESS, LET ALONE RE-OPEN, FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT 2 OR 3 WEEKS. OF COURSE WE WILL POST OUR RE-OPENING DATE AS SOON AS WE CAN, BUT WE HAVE NO IDEA AT THE MOMENT.
WE HAVE BEEN VERY LUCKY TO ESCAPE THE WORST OF THE CONFLAGRATION, MAINLY THANKS TO THE WIND DIRECTION. NATURALLY OUR CONCERNS AND THOUGHTS ARE WITH OUR SUFFERING NEIGHBOURS IN THE FLATS ABOVE AND ALSO IN FRANCO’S AND THE PANDA KITCHEN. A VERY DIFFICULT TIME FOR ALL.
Our usual opening hours are:
10am – 5pm (Tuesday to Friday)
10am – 4.30pm (Saturday)
Please wear a face covering in our small showroom. Hand sanitiser is available and we use a serving screen at the counter.

High Quality Handthrown Stoneware
At The Meadows Pottery in Edinburgh’s Southside (we are close to the Summerhall arts venue) we offer a wide range of the highest quality traditional pottery and contemporary ceramics in handthrown stoneware, with prices from £3 to over £1500. We accept commissions and we are always keen to discuss the possibilities with you. Everything is made by us, by hand.
We are privileged to have been working with the extraordinary photographer Iga Gozdowska. Please look at the page Photos by Iga Gozdowska to see some of the wonderful results.
Here are some other recently made pieces.
From the beginning we have focused on supplying customers directly with reasonably priced, high quality stoneware that is warm, simple and easy on the eye.
With the distinctive range of glazes we’ve developed over more than thirty years, everything from a simply glazed bowl to a highly decorated piece is created with the same care and consideration.
We are interested to know what you think of our pots and what you would like us to make. We benefit from many returning customers who have grown to know our wares over the years, some building up there own sets of ware for the home, or finding us a good source of successful gifts for friends and family. We make sure we keep a wide price range of wares on sale, with plenty of items selling for under £20. We make pots for all sorts of purposes, from the more usual mugs, jugs, bowls, vases, and teapots to colanders, goblets, garlic pots, saltcrocks, candleholders, cheesebells and planters, even the occasional five gallon teapot! Everything is handthrown on the potter’s wheel, on the premises, by us.
Apart from the porcelain, everything is high-fired oxidised stoneware, fired in an electric kiln to Cone 10, which is around 1300 degrees Celsius. We hope our pots give something to the user, from the comfort of a curved form with a calming glaze, to the reassurance that comes from knowing a thing has been well made using the highest quality materials.
