In the nineteen seventies, Alastair Dunn, the renowned Scottish potter, painter and sculptor began producing porcelain miniatures from his workshop at Kings Cross, Isle of Arran. Many of these are still in our growing collection today.
After his death in 1986 his dedicated team continued with his successful business until in 1988 they decided the time was right to follow their own dream. Their continued hard work and determination and of course some Alastair Dunns vision, ensured the business went from strength to strength, allowing them to purchase the Old School in Kilmory in 1990.
Island Porcelain, as we know it today, was born.
Their business flourished until 2006 when they decided it was time to sell.
From there Island Porcelain found itself back in Lamlash for a short while before eventually settling in Corrie, where it remained until the summer 2017.
Today, Island Porcelain has come full circle and can be found back in its original home, Studio 4, Lamlash.
It could be said we've come home to roost!
