Always a highlight of a trip to Orkney. So glad that John is back to carving his beautiful birds and there's a great range of artwork on display as well. Warm friendly atmosphere, it's like visiting old friends.

I am not into jewelry so I can't comment, but the wood sculpture is outstanding, very tactile, very minimalist, proving less is much much more, quite brilliant. Then there is the painting, beautifully impressionistic, so much colour, so Orkney , if you are lucky enough...More
