A Life in Porcelain

Alison Borthwick, a life in ceramics

Alison Borthwick studied ceramics and printmaking at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen from 1978-82. She returned to Glasgow to set up her pottery manufacturing business full time in 1983 with money saved up from  waitressing.

The first workshop in the east end of Glasgow was followed in 1986 by a move to a basement workshop in the city centre. Here she built up a wide range of hand painted porcelain giftware, tableware and lighting before moving to open the Buchlyvie Pottery Shop near Loch Lomond in 1989 with her family.
