A thousand thanks to all our crowdfunders!

Over the past few days, we have finally set up the display in our ‘shop shed’. This video hopefully gives some indication of where we are up to. We can’t say thankyou enough to those wonderful people who made this possible by crowdfunding us. It is incredible to think that others will invest in us, […]

open the sky and let some light in…

  (This post was first published over on Chris’s personal blog, here.) We live in a seemingly perpetual Advent. Not just because of all the early Christmas decorating, but because we are all still waiting; for vaccines, for ‘normality’, for release, for and end to isolation and for the possibility of touch. Strange then that […]

Limited edition…

This year, we decided to focus our attention on a limited number of Christmas decorations instead of spreading ourselves too thinly. Last year Karen and I had a competition to see who glazed the most decorations. Karen won by glazing lots of workshops decs and I made her a special one-off as a reward! But this […]

Seatree wins a prize…

We’re very excited to say that we won a prize this weekend at Potfest. Every year there is a (very friendly) competition for the potters taking part in Potfest Scotland and we entered our ‘girl, amended’ into the competition – created from a broken sculpture, as the theme this year is ‘recycle, rebuild, repurpose’. We were […]

A work in progress…

We’ve just watched a beautiful talk by Rob Bell called ‘Drops like stars’. It was about the way that destructive forces, like bereavement, betrayal, debt, changes things for us in a positive way – the way that they define the future and the choices we make. He wove so many stories through the talk, including […]

Become a seatree supporter!

Seatree is a small, independent business; what we like to call our ongoing experiment into living creatively and sustainably. It has been a labour of love for both of us for four years now. Like many businesses, the pandemic has forced us to do a lot of rethinking. We know that we need to make […]

Instructions for pinch pot making!

We are doing a community project as part of our local village festival. That is what this wee video is all about… For those of you who need to know, these are the other instructions; Pinch some pottery! It’s simple! Take the ball of clay and briefly roll it back into a ball if it […]

We think values matter most…

Recently Michaela has been untertaking a course with the brilliant Design Trust, intended to help us develop new skills around making our website more effective because, after all, this online selling thing is a brand new world for us. She was both surprised and pleased that the course first encouraged participants look at what their […]

Announcing our Workshop in a Tin!

We’ve missed people’s creativity and energy around the studio and so cooked up an idea. After lots of research and trials, we are now up and running with Workshops in a Tin. How does it work?It involves sending you a slab of clay, with instructions and design ideas. You need no experience, but if you […]
