Commemorative Mug, a Quaich, a
Rectangle Plate and a Highland

Highland Stoneware: Built to
Stoneware is a producer of
quality ceramics which are
designed, made and hand-painted
in the north west Highlands of
Founded by David Grant in 1974,
the company is celebrating 40
years of business and has
created a commemorative mug to
mark the occasion.
David’s original mission, as
well as establishing a local
business, was to create a unique
range of quality pottery to be
used and enjoyed.
He was studying at the Royal
College of Art where his vision
and passion for manufacturing
practical stoneware was
recognised and supported by his
then tutor and course Professor
Together they formed Highland
Stoneware and for the last 40
years, the company has been a
thriving employer in the area,
and has seen David travel across
the world to introduce buyers to
Such is the quality and
distinctive nature of the pieces
from Highland Stoneware, that
they have attracted buyers from
the UK, Europe, America and
David’s personal demonstrations
have seen him captivate
audiences and buyers in
Burberry’s in Paris, Harrods in
London, Jenners in Edinburgh,
Hall’s in Kansas City, and
Kasuga in Japan.
Highland Stoneware has workshops
and showrooms in Lochinver and
Ullapool and visitors are
encouraged to have a look round
the showroom, and then venture
into the workshop, where they
can meet and chat to the artists
as they work.
From producing the special clay,
through to each piece being
individually hand-painted before
being fired to 1300°c in a
controlled kiln atmosphere, it
is all made locally with the
magnificent products available
for sale in the shops, through
retail stockists up and down the
country and online.
Local artists draw their
inspiration from the rugged west
coast landscapes and seascapes,
as well as various animals,
birds and flowers to decorate
Highland Stoneware processes
combine a richness and depth of
quality, with performance and
durability and a unique palette
of colours and finishes, which
are always evolving.
Highland Stoneware offers an
extensive range of tableware,
cookware and gifts, these
include complete dinner sets,
vases, bowls, lamp-bases,
Quaichs, coasters, teapots,
cheese dishes, butter dishes,
jugs, and a selection of mug
Giftware also includes large
fish plates, rectangular plates, ashets and house name signs.
Highland Stoneware also takes
bespoke commissions, which can
be in relation to a special
message inscribed on a plate,
through to tailored tile panels
to adorn the area behind the Aga
in the kitchen.
The oven-to-tableware has been
developed and tested in Highland
Stoneware’s own kitchens, to
ensure they are thoroughly
practical as well as good
looking. The entire range is
ovenproof, freezer proof,
dishwasher & microwave safe, as
well as being extremely
resistant to chipping.
With such an array of pieces,
together with a variety of
decorative themes, which mix
well and complement each other,
Highland Stoneware offers a
wedding list and gift list
service to build a collection of
this beautiful stoneware to mark
a special occasion.
Highland Stoneware has a firm
and loyal fan-base. Through
Facebook and Twitter and via
return visits to the workshops,
customers continue to sing the
praises of their purchases,
including one buyer who declares
that his mugs are still in
pristine condition having been
in the dishwasher on a daily
basis over the last 9 years.
As all of the products are made
and painted by hand, there are
no two pieces identical and
that quirky nature adds to their
appeal among customers. Although
patterns will 'match', there is
variation from piece to piece
which is regarded as a desirable
feature of a Highland Stoneware
The ethos behind Highland
Stoneware remains as firm today
as it did back in 1974 and that
is to continue to produce
innovative, creative and useable
tableware, cookware and gift

A great new strategy board game
Brighten up a cold and dull evening with Power
Grid, a great new strategy board game by
The object of Power Grid is to supply the most
cities with power when someone’s network gains a
predetermined size. In this new edition, players
mark pre-existing routes between cities for
connection, and then vie against other players
to purchase the power plants that you use to
supply the power.
However, as plants are purchased, newer more
efficient plants become available so you’re
potentially allowing others to access to
superior equipment merely by purchasing at all.
Additionally, players must acquire the raw
materials, like coal, oil, garbage, or uranium,
to power said plants (except for the highly
valuable ’renewable energy’ wind/solar plants),
making it a constant struggle to upgrade your
plants for maximum efficiency while still
retaining enough wealth to quickly expand your
network to get the cheapest routes.
Tried and Tested by Jenny Itzcovitz
and his friend Paul were over for a games
playing evening, so we were delighted to play
Power Grid. Paul had played the game before, so
this helped to get us started.
The game comes with a comprehensive rule book so
we allowed plenty of time to read the instructions and set
up the game.
Power Grid has a two sided board, so to begin
the game you decide if you want to represent
Germany or USA, we opted for Germany. Money is
given to each player - this is 50 Elektro,
together with an overview card, and wooden
houses in the colour of your choice.
Each player places one of his houses on the left
of the 1 on the scoring track and one on the
player order. The game is played over several
rounds. Each round of the game has five phases,
and in each phase the players take their actions
in the order specified.
The five phases are 1. Determine Player Order.
2. Auction Power Plants 3. Buying Resources 4.
Building and 5. Bureaucracy.
Each player represents a power company which
works to supply electricity to the cities.
During the game the players buy power plants at
auction and resources such as coal, oil, uranium
and garbage to produce electricity at these
power plants. There is also the option to make
your plants more efficient and environmentally
end, the player who supplies the most cities
with power wins the game.
We thoroughly enjoyed this intelligent board
game as it gave us a chance to be ruthless and
strategic as we built up our power companies and
connected the electricity to our cities and
provided them with resources. The auctions for
power plants also allowed us to be
competitive as we sought to get the best buys
and expand our cities.
As the game picked up momentum it became a close
battle to take charge of the board. But Paul
played a powerful hand, gaining control of a
strong network of cities, getting the best
resources and making it impossible for us to get
as many power links as he had obtained during
Challenging, thoughtful and highly entertaining,
I would recommend this powerful new game for
older teenagers or adults looking for a
competitive game that relies on strategy and
tactical play - rather than chance or luck.
I'm looking forward to playing it again soon and
seeing if I can beat Paul this time!
Grid is recommended for 2 - 6 players, ages 13 and over.
Usual playing time is around 2 hours. RRP is
