Rigler and Hutchison have designed a one-pot cooking pot with a lid that cooks a second layer of food. The external surface is inspired by a rock they found at Tràigh a’ Bhìgeil (The Singing Sands) on the western coast of Eigg not far from Sweeney’s Bothy. The pot is being produced at a foundry in central Scotland that historically made the Falkirk Pot; a three-legged vessel for use over an open fire. Many such pots may have found their way to the Isle of Eigg, at a time when living conditions called for such basic comforts.
