Tattoos in Slate

I love a bit of ink 😉

This board was one of my most challenging designs to date (but I love a challenge too!). This cheeseboard was a present for a couple who each had very distinctive tattoos.



Here’s the tattoo;

Remember, tattoos are for life, slate is for many lifetimes 😉


Black Barony House Sign

Here’s another recent house sign. The folks at this house have bats roosting there- hence the design! This was made from a reclaimed Cornish roof slate.

If you would like a unique hand carved and enamelled house sign, then contact me for prices for design and carving. I can courier these items UK wide for approximately £11 (depending on your location). Message me for details, or email
