... in search of the monster : 89


Upon arrival, we were greeted by Rebekah’s husband Joss who was minding the shop while Rebekah was out.


...


Before we could hit the collective panic button, Joss assured us she’d be back soon. We decided to head back to town for a bite to eat, but not before we cleaned her out of her beautiful clay creations. Literally.


We went back a couple of hours later and there she was.


Rebekah began making pottery twenty years ago as an apprentice at the Loch Ness Clay Works and she eventually took it over. She likes simple lines and incorporates Celtic design and eastern infl uences in her work.


Originally from Inverness, Rebekah was always


fascinated with Nessie. Right up until the infamous Surgeon’s photograph was revealed to be a big fake. Almost instantly, she stopped believing. But that’s not to say she doesn’t believe in things you can’t always explain. It is Scotland after all, land of faeries and legends and lore so deep it could fi ll the whole of Loch Ness.


Rebehak is proud of Drum, and all of the town’s tourism efforts, despite her disillusionment with the monster. As a craftsperson, she benefi ts a great deal from it. And is proud that her pieces end up in far-fl ung places throughout he world.


With our rental now full of pots, bowls, plates and mugs (just doing our part to help the local economy) we went in search of another local artist Rebekah had put us in touch with – a jewelry, kilt accessory, jack-of-all-trades craftsperson named Rab.
