Gallery owner Winifred Wright works in high-fired stoneware, mostly as handmade decorative and sculptural forms inspired by the stunning Ayrshire coastline and landscape.
She graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in the 1960s and has extensive teaching experience.
Apart from designing and making ceramics for her craft gallery, Winifred works mostly on commisions for unique corporate gifts, prizes and designs for architectural and outdoor settings.
The Girvan Gallery is situated in the pretty Ayrshire harbour town of Girvan. The gallery displays work from a number of Ayrshire artists and craftspeople including Winifred’s own work from the nearby Girvan Pottery where she regularly hosts pottery and design workshops.
Whilst the pottery is well equipped, it lacks high-tech devices which, says Winifred, “is the way we like it!”
The Girvan area is a magnet for artists and craftworkers with the sea and stunning Ayrshire landscape offering so much inspiration.
The area has several castles, most notably Culzean, other historic sites including Crossraguel Abbey and golf courses including the world-famous Turnberry.
An unspoilt and tranquil corner of Scotland, the Girvan area makes it a treasure waiting to be discovered.
