Carved from a reclaimed slate (approximately 40 x 25 cm), this design is based on the design from a Class I Pictish stone found in Grantown-On-Spey in the early 1860s (now in the Museum of Scotland).
Sealed with a food-safe stone sealer, this serving board/trivet (and many of my other pieces) is available from The Hub on the High Street, Innerleithen.
Bee and honeycomb serving board/trivet (design ©HatchBurnCarve).
This was carved, filed, sanded and hand polished from a reclaimed roof slate (40 x 25 cm).
After enamelling, the board was sealed with a food-safe stone sealer.
Between the numerous recent commissions, I’ve also been busy making new stock items for fairs and shows.

This was based on one of the Pictish Bull carvings from an Iron Age hillfort at Burghead in Moray, Scotland. This fort is particularly interesting as it has a chambered well built within.
A commission from 2014. The customer had requested a cheese board/trivet with the bull (or auroch) from the caves at Lascaux. This was a lovely piece to do- probably one of the most ancient designs I’ve done (these are an incredible 17,300 years old).
I received the following message once the piece had been delivered;
“The parcel arrived this morning before 10:00 – that was a quick service. Everything is great, really lovely. The Lascaux bull is my favourite as I am keeping him! He is sitting on the dining table and I can’t help running my hand over him when I pass – slate is really very tactile. Many thanks for all you work. I will certainly pass your name and cards on to ‘spread the word’. Best wishes for the future.”
