    Welcome to The Mission House Studio, a converted church in the “Bays of Harris”, the home and studio of Photographer Beka Globe and Ceramic Artist Nickolai Globe.

    Welcome to The Mission House Studio, a converted church in the “Bays of Harris”, the home and studio of Photographer Beka Globe and Ceramic Artist Nickolai Globe.   
     

    The studio, overlooks the desolate and stunning rocky landscape of the Bays of Harris. Beka’s photographs float off the stone walls, suspended by high tensile wires. Nickolai’s ceramics ranging from functional stoneware to abstract sculptural forms are displayed on furniture, fashioned from old timber and reclaimed materials from the Church conversion. Ambient music reverberates through the space.

    Beka, a traditionally trained photographer, captures the emotive vastness, depth and simplicity of the Harris landscape. Her work explores the ‘edge’ where land meets sea, sea meets sky, and sky meets land. A dynamic place where elements collide, interact and influence one another. Her fine art prints are printed in-house using the best quality archival paper and pigment based inks.

    Nickolai Globe produces individual studio ceramics, influenced directly by the environment of the rugged North West. His new work takes ceramics to the edge of craft, where sculpture and function merge. His high fired stoneware bowls and vessel forms become geological and carry with them a deep reflection of the terrain of the Hebrides. Incorporating glass and raw minerals into his work they literally embody the landscape. Drawing from elements of Zen and the unpredictable, his work reflects, rather than emulates nature.

    Road Directions

    The road to the Mission House Studio takes in the breathtaking lunar landscape of the east coast of Harris. Known as “The Bays of Harris” the rocky East Coast south of Tarbert along the Minch is full of small village communities, hidden coves and stunning views of the Minch, Skye and The West Coast of Mainland Scotland. Also a haven for wildlife, you will often see seals, otters and a myriad of birdlife. As you can drive around the island in an afternoon, it is well worth visiting the bays and stopping in on your way.
