Earthen Images – moggies from Methil

The huge delight with which people took to the ‘Methil Moggies’ at IAI’s last Art & Craft Market pays tribute to the imagination and skill of their creators, Earthen Images. A lovely gift to buy for a loved one to show how much you appreciate them.

Established in Fife in 1990, all items created by Earthen Images are handmade in stoneware clay, and are suitable for inside or outside display because the clay is vitrified during the firing process. All of the hand painting is done in a red iron oxide, except the small fat cat that is painted in a copper oxide. Because every one is hand made and painted, each one is bespoke.

Have a look on their website at www.earthen-images.com.

These friendly creatures will be joined by their pals again on Saturday 12th September 11am-4.30pm at our ART:JAM

Earthen Images – including the famous ‘Methil Moggies’

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAThe fourth maker on our list of Bloomin’ Marvellous creative folk we’ll be welcoming to the ‘Spring Into Summer’ Art & Craft Fair on Saturday 2nd May in Inverkeithing is Earthen Images. Check out their website for images of their fun and delightful pottery animals, including dogs, highland cattle, pigs and sheep, and their most famous creation – the adorable ‘Methil Moggies’, as well as house signs and scenic plaques. Items are hand-crafted from stoneware clay and fired to high temperatures. This vitrifies the clay, making it frost proof and so suitable for indoor or outdoor use. MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA
