Lizzie is from Kent and Douglas from Oxfordshire but they have been living in Scotland for 24 years now. Their little cottage is idyllically placed by a river in a small village near Dalkeith.
They both went to Art College and it was very exciting for me to discover their art. Lizzie showed me a few books that she made as well as some of her collage. I was really taken by her “People are better with animals” and “People are better with trees” which are fantastic.
Then I went to see Douglas’ fabulous workshop that he built himself to make his pottery. He made his own yurt and exhibits his great work inside. Douglas is also an occupational therapy technical instructor for the NHS.
Lizzie et Douglas sont anglais mais habite en Ecosse depuis 24 ans. Leur petit cottage de campagne se trouve au bord d’un rivière.
Ils ont tous les deux étudié dans une école des Beaux-Arts et j’étais impatiente de découvrir leurs créations. Lizzie m’a montré quelques uns de ses livres et aussi quelques collages que j’ai beaucoup aimé.
Puis, j’ai visité l’atelier de poterie de Douglas ainsi que la yourte où il expose son travail. Douglas travaille aussi pour la sécurité sociale. Il utilise la poterie à des fins thérapeutiques.
