Here's another vase by Alistair Macduff.  There's a whole display case full of his stuff in the Museum of Edinburgh on the Royal Mile.  He also ran the Dorincourt Potters workshop for disabled people for a few years in the fifties and sixties, mostly screen-printing modern designs onto mass-produced earthenware pots and tiles. You see his name on the back of their wares.  Then in later life he went to Canada to teach craft skills to the Inuit population, where he lived to a great age and (for all I know) may be living still.
