Pictish Stag Serving Board

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.

Pictish Stag and Horse Tiles

A commission for two slate tiles (each 15 cm squared) to be placed on either side of a fireplace.

The Pictish stag is based on the carving from Grantown-On-Spey, Highland. The Pictish horse design is based on the carving from Inverurie, Aberdeenshire.

A Pictish Horse Stable Sign

Made for a horse called ‘Rio’, this stable sign was hand crafted from a reclaimed roof slate (cut to 30 x 25 cm). I based this design (©HatchBurnCarve) on the Pictish horse carving from the Class I Pictish symbol stone in Inverurie, taking into account the slenderness of Rio.
