New Esty Shop

I’ve finally got round to setting up my Etsy shop after many requests and questions regarding the purchase of my work;


I’ve listed some of my new stone stack pendants, rune stones and candle holders as well as the chance to own some of the pieces I have created for exhibitions during the last year.

If you would like me to add anything specific, just let me know (use my contact form or email hatchburncarve@yahoo.co.uk).

I also welcome commissions and personal orders!



Cornish and East Lothian Candle Holders

Three new driftwood candle holders.
Hand crafted from wood I collected from Tyninghame Beach in East Lothian and Crackington Haven in North Cornwall.


After I collect the driftwood, it is placed in my outside wood store for around a year, then stored indoors for approximately three months.


The process of making starts with removing any bark with my bushcraft knife, then coring holes for the candles. This is followed by an initial sanding with two grades of paper using an electric sander, then the long slow process of hand sanding with another four or five grades of paper before two coats of wax and polishing.





East Lothian driftwood candle holder

I recently made three driftwood candle holders for members of the same family.
Here’s the first of these- this is made from wood I collected at Seacliff Beach in East Lothian.


Hand-crafted, hand-sanded and waxed.
If you would like a similar piece, please PM me here or email hatchburncarve@yahoo.co.uk


Prices vary depending on size,  and I can courier these UK wide. I also have some large pieces of both Cornish and East Lothian driftwood in stock, so can make any size you would like 🙂


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 hatchburncarve@yahoo.co.uk (more of these to come too!)

Driftwood Candle Holders

Hand-crafted from wood found at Yellowcraigs beach in East Lothian.

Any remaining bark was stripped from the wood, some of the knots were carved out and after coring the holes for the tealights, the long process of hand-sanding begun!


Each one took around two to three hours of hand sanding (with five different grades of paper) before I finished with two coats of wax.


If you would like to purchase one, simply message me on this site or email hatchburncarve@yahoo.co.uk. Thanks.

Both of these are now SOLD, but I have been making others using wood collected from Gullane Beach in East Lothian- pictures coming soon!
