Yes, but he only pops in very occassionally.
I've just found his website, and unfortunately, he can't answer individual queries such as this. :-\
I suppose it must have got out of hand!

He does "twit" a lot, I don't know how that works. (I don't use a mobile phone.)

Cheers, Sue (M)

Have you thought of writing to Mark Hill to ask if he has any idea? He did, after all, write the recent Caithness book, so he might have an idea of how few of these really big bowls were produced. I do see a lot of Caithness around and have been familiar with it most of my life, and I have not seen these. Sorry I can't help more, I'm just rather fascinated and it's got me thinking. :)
I will ask in Crieff next time I'm there - there is a lady who does seem to know a bit about things.
yeah that would be great Sue if you could ask the lady at visitor center, noone else has came forward with any info as of yet
