Wall hanging, entitled Waltzer Two, by Michael Brettle

This ceramic wall hanging, entitled 'Waltzer Two', was made by the Scottish artist Michael Brettle in 1979.

The wall hanging depicts a male and female figure in a fair ground waltzer. The slab-built and hand-modelled ceramic has metal lustre and enamels.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
