Pictish Horse Stable Sign

This stable sign was based on the Pictish horse design from the Class I Symbol Stone in Inverurie (but with added ‘spots’ as Blackjack has these!).


This was carved into a reclaimed roof slate and hand-enamelled.

Icelandic Horses Stable Signs

I was asked to create matching stable signs for two Icelandic Horses- ‘Ess’ and ‘Lyfting’.

I drew the horse head, adding some classic Pictish spirals and carved these into two reclaimed roof slates (design © Hatch, Burn, Carve/Martin Wilson). These were then hand-enamelled.



Here’s one of my original drawings (note that these are my own design and therefore subject to copyright);
