OTHER GREAT LOCAL ARTISTS
The East Neuk is full of talented artists and crafts people. Here I will add people who I think create beautiful arts and crafts.
East Neuk Beach Crafts was started by Louise Stocker, during the summer of 2016 in the beautiful fishing town of Anstruther in the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland. After moving to the area, Louise was stunned by the beautiful treasures that she found while wandering the beaches. In particular, it’s a great spot for antique beach pottery, small shards of broken pottery that have been tumbled in the sea (often for over 100 years!). She began to build up a collection, along with sea-glass, driftwood and old pieces of boats and fishing creels. She couldn't help but be inspired by these gorgeous materials and soon got creative, making gifts for family and friends. Louise was encouraged to take her art one step further and now sells through her online shop, several retail outlets and local craft fairs and exhibitions. Her main focus is creating little quirky coastal and seaside scenes from beach pottery, often including seagulls, the little colourful East Neuk cottages, dolphins, seals and puffins!
