Borgh Pottery

Borgh Pottery is a studio pottery owned and run by Alex and Sue Blair.
Established in 1974 as Stornoway Pottery, the workshop and showroom were moved to their present premises in Borve in 1978 and later became known as Borgh Pottery.
The pottery is in the Outer Hebrides on the Isle of Lewis and is situated 18 miles North West of Stornoway on the A857 to Ness (Nis), 25 minutes by car.

All the ceramics in the showroom are made by Alex and Sue . A range of carefully selected gifts is also available to compliment the ceramics including locally made Harris Tweed items and soaps.

Car parking is available at the pottery, longer vehicles and coaches can park adjacent to the pottery.

 

The pots are all hand-thrown or hand-built using traditional techniques. This method of working allows flexibility and scope in design; it is therefore possible to accept commissions for a variety of work from Dinner Sets to One-Off speciality items. The stoneware is ovenproof and safe in the dishwasher.
  Alex and Sue use a selection of their own rich and muted glazes which have a depth and quality only to be found in high fired stoneware. For a small pottery there is a wide range of glazes colour and finish, from gloss to matt.
