Blue2 Sponsor Statue

Oor Wullie! Your Wullie! A’body’s Wullie!

We are delighted to be sponsoring the “Oor Rabbie’ The Bard and The Bucket” statue on the Bucket Trail!

The statue was designed by artist Susan McGill, a Scottish ceramicist and designer. Susan trained at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee and currently works from her studio in Fife. Susan’s ceramics are based on traditional shapes and decorated with black and white patterns and words inspired by Scottish songs, poems and sayings.

Susan’s Oor Wullie design brings together two Scottish icons, Oor Wullie and Robert Burns. Both inspirational in their use of the Scots language. Toether they make the perfect Scotsman with wit, ingenuity, humour, passion, romance, moosies and dungarees!

Our statue will be on display outside the Unicorn (which is brilliant as we fund raise every year for the Unicorn also!).
