Roth and Ramberg and the talented Rebekah


Now that it’s November, you should be seeing Rebekah on your Roth and Ramberg ‘In Search of the Loch Ness Monster’ desk calendar. If you don’t have one, drop us a line and we’ll get you a copy and we’ll also put you on the list for the upcoming 2013 version where we traveled from Chicago to Walcott, Iowa… home of the World’s Largest Truck Stop. You can also go online and see the calendar and read the behind-the-scenes stories. But for now… back to Rebekah and the monster.

After traveling up a very twisty, very narrow mountain road, we arrived at Rebekah’s house. Rebekah began making pottery twenty years ago as an apprentice at the Loch Ness Clay Works and she eventually took it over. Today she ships pieces all over the world, to places as far flung as Hawaii.

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. Is it Scotland after all, land of faeries and legends and lore so deep it could fill the whole of Loch Ness.
