Pot, by Kathleen McLellan

This stoneware pot for flowers or dried grasses was made by the artist Kathleen McLellan in 1981.

The small oval container resembles a sea urchin in shape. It is made of oxidised stoneware with a white dolomite glaze. Four circles are decorated with red iron oxide. The circles at the top and the spine of the pot are bordered with small punched holes.

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.
