About Me/Ordering Items

Some of my work is available to purchase in my Etsy shop;

https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/HatchBurnCarve

If you would like a specific piece which isn’t for sale on Etsy,  just use the contact form below (or email hatchburncarve@yahoo.co.uk). I usually have many items in stock, or can make something for you in a matter of weeks (depending on waiting list). I welcome commissions and offer a full design service.

All of the pieces I create are entirely freehand carved or handcrafted in my workshop in the Scottish Borders using a variety of Foredom, Proxxon and Dremel tools as well as traditional hammer and chisel. Practically all of my materials are recycled/reclaimed or found on my travels around the UK.

To the best of my knowledge, I am the only person in the UK who carves and sells Buddhist mantra and symbol stones. I supply stones to the shop at Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery which is the largest Tibetan Buddhist centre in Western Europe.

I have exhibited my artwork in galleries across Scotland. The first piece I exhibited (‘Stream of Knowledge’) won the Creative Place First Prize at an exhibition in the Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre in Peebles in 2014.

I am a member of ‘Animus- Art for the World Soul’ artist’s collective;
