About Tanya and TKU Ceramika

My name is Tanya, I am a ceramic artist working from my little home studio in Aberdeenshire NE Scotland.

I studied pottery many years ago, and after working in other disciplines, I came back to ceramics about 8 years ago.

I love organic forms, bright colours and quirky design.   This (I hope) can be seen in my work.

The things I make are hand built and fired to either Stoneware or Earthenware temperatures depending on the piece.

I live in Cuminestown with my partner and sometime long suffering helper outer Jim and our two Chihuahua Cross dogs,  Lola and Pip.

My work is available from several  outlets in Moray and The Highlands. See Stockists) and here on my website when stocks allow.


So... What's next?

I have created two distinct ranges which I hope will complement each other whilst retaining their own distinct attributes.

The EARTH Series is an organic range incorporating form and colour derived from the natural environment.

Shapes are simple and colours are earthy and muted, reminiscent of the farmland and coastal environments where I am lucky enough to be.

The SPLASH Series is bright and quirky in design.  

Carved and stamped background patterns, with intricate overlaid relief designs which are highlighted with beautiful colour.   This range has been designed with humour and a sense of the unusual.
