Studio Brae is a small ceramics studio based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Studio Brae handcrafts sculptural yet purposefully functional objects using clay, incorporating locally-sourced, high-quality, natural, and sustainable materials wherever possible.
Each piece is mindfully fashioned, in small batches, into iconic and timeless forms influenced by architecture and nature.
The use of a limited palette of neutral and earthy tones coupled with stony and matte textures enhance the natural variations present in the clay and reflects Scottish landscapes. Variation of tones is achieved by using small percentages of natural oxides in glazes and clay bodies to create irregularities and depth.
This deliberate choice of aesthetics is to allow a deeper and reflective connection to nature anchored through the practical use of the pieces and thus enhancing the wellbeing of the recipient.
