A must do when visiting Orkney
Feb 2020
Andrew is a very interesting gentleman with whom to converse. We bought a couple of items from him. We asked around and from the favourable comments made we returned to the pottery. Karen bought three of Andrew's self written books of Skara which he signed and drew some cartoons in the fly sheet.
He has a free and very informative brochure which tells of many p[laces to visit locally and is well worth reading. Next time we visit we will avail ourselves of this information and visit the places mentioned
Many thanks Andrew we really did enjoy our short visit with you

Fabulous pottery
Jul 2019 • Family
Visited this lovely pottery whilst visiting Orkney. Work on display is beautiful with a fantastic range of items.
Prices are excellent and there is the opportunity to watch the potter at work.

Very friendly and welcoming with no ‘pushiness’ to buy ( although we did).

Part of the Orkney Craft trail which is excellent for local crafts and to see crafts people at work.

Highly recommend.

Marvelous Harray Potter
Jul 2018
We rented a croft in Kirkwall, and our dishes were all handmade by this potter. So one day we drove over to look at the wares and found some beautiful items to take home, including an elegant vase with neolithic designs incised on it and some darling small animal figurines to taken back for our grandchildren.

One of many amazing crafts places in Orkney, the "Harray Potter" was the best.

My wife was enchanted by pottery that used motifs from the ruins, lovingly crafted by the "Harray Potter". She ordered a piece, and it was shipped safely back to the states, and now serves as a perfect reminder of the enchanting Orkney islands.

We stopped by and the friendly staff opened the kiln to show how it works. We bought a little plate with a Viking ship on it, then he gave my boy a coin made from 1831! Amazing and generous! My son was Very grateful!

Amazing little shop and really great to be able to walk into the workshop and watch Andrew at the wheel. My nephew was fascinated.

Wonderful pottery
May 2014 • Couples
We were coming south towards the pottery but missed it entirely and turned round and headed back finding it then on our left, set back a little from the road with some parking space available. Andrew Appleby was at the wheel creating some pots when we arrived, and he encourages people to watch him potting. I was told he can be quite eccentric but he was talkative and hard at work when we called. His assistant also helps with the till and shelf-filling.
There is an enormous variety of types, styles and functions of pottery, all available for purchase. He has some coiled pots of the Neolithic Grooved Ware designs, in which he has a special interest, working with prehistory experts to create designs using the same materials that were available on Orkney in the Neolithic age.
Pentland Sky and Sage Gray are two of his present modern designs. There were some charming little mice, reminiscent of the ones found as signatures in some woodcarving, and plenty to suit all budgets and requirements.
I could have spent much longer there were our time less constrained. There is also a Harray Pottery Store in Stromness for those without transport of their own. There is a website at http://www.applepot.co.uk and an additional video website at http://www.andrewappleby.co.uk
