Experience The January Blues (In The Best Possible Way!)

Feeling the January blues?  Don't despair! Stay cosy and cheer up your home with one of the latest additions to the Pittenweem Blue collection by Karen Edward at Funky Scottish...

The range which includes coastal-themed bowls and tiles now also features gorgeous kitchenware including casserole dishes, serving platters and pretty mugs...ideal for serving up warming, winter feasts.

This collection is inspired by the architecture of the East Neuk and our historical trading connections with far flung places, including Holland. 

"The East Neuk is unique in its architecture due to the connection with Holland and the lowlands. The crow step gables and the red pantiles are all Dutch influenced. The pantiles came over as ballast in the boats. They traded ideas, skills and building materials as well as Scottish skins, wool coal and salt. The houses are lovely to paint being quirky with odd shapes and outside staircases..."  - Karen Edward

"This range I call Pittenweem Blue is a wee take on the Delft tiles seen in many of the East Neuk houses. I went to Delft a few years ago and loved the artistic feel of the city...and of course the hand-painted ceramics in blue and white!!" - Karen Edward

Discover the collection in Funky Scottish on the high street in Pittenweem.  

The cafe-gallery-boutique is open during winter from Thursday to Sunday.
