Hand Carved Mani Stones

Delivered two of my Mani Stones to Samye Ling Tibetan Buddhist Monastery this week.


Very chuffed that they are stocking my work- it’s an amazing place.

These are hand-carved from large Cornish sea-stones which I collected from beaches in North Cornwall.

Slate Placemats and Coasters

A recent commission. Set of four matching placemats and coasters.

Each one free-hand carved and finished for a super smooth surface.


These are made from reclaimed Scottish slate which has a lovely deep blue colour. Just collected these a few weeks ago from a dismantled shed/garage.



If you would like me to make something similar for you, please PM me here, or email

Reclaimed Marble Chopping/Pastry Boards

Once a broken marble fireplace…but after the Hatch, Burn, Carve treatment, now a marble chopping/pastry board!


Hand cut with an angle grinder (boy, that was fun!).
I have two of these for sale, each one approx 35 x 24 cm.


PM me here, or email

Both now SOLD! I’m on the look out for more broken marble though….let me know if you have any and I can buy it from you (and/or make a board in return).


Large Driftwood Candle Holder

Hand crafted, sanded (six grades of sandpaper) and waxed (two coats of wax) from driftwood found at Gullane Beach in East Lothian.


This long candle holder measures 48cm x 7cm diameter and holds six candles.


SOLD already! However, if you would like me to make one for you, PM me here or email (more of these to come too!)

New Hand Crafted Cheese Knife

A new creation from a couple of days ago (and to keep up with demand as these are proving to be very popular!).


Hand shaped and carved from a solid block of reclaimed mahogany, then hand sanded with six grades of paper, detail hand carved and finally, two coats of wax applied.

The blade is reclaimed Sheffield Steel- the tang is set into the wood with super strength epoxy.
