In our 'In Focus' audio mini-series, take a closer look into a wide range of topics spanning the vast natural and cultural heritage of the Highlands and Islands. In this edition of 'In Focus', join potter Charly Hamlyn as shares the broad strokes of the creative process behind the creation of her ceramics and finding inspiration of the Isle of Lewis.
