Natural Slate House Sign

A natural slate house sign. Carved and enamelled from a large (and old) piece of Cornish slate (90 x 50 x 6 cm).

This sign required some careful enamelling as we wanted to retain the years of lichen growth on the surface (so no over-painting of the letters).

Cat Memorial

Bobcat

I was asked to create a bobcat design to be used as both a carving template and also to feature as a logo on ice hockey shirts.

The design (©HatchBurnCarve) was carved into a 25 x 25 cm piece of reclaimed slate. Following freehand carving, this was hand polished to a mirror-like finish and enamelled using professional gold and white monument/memorial enamels;

My design was then expertly transformed into a print by Team Xpress, based in Pickerington, Ohio.  These jerseys are now worn by the ‘Bobcats’ team that play in the Perani’s Pond Hockey League at their games in Columbus, Ohio.
