Guru Rinpoche Mantra Stone

A commission I made during the summer of 2015.

The 12 syllable Guru Rinpoche mantra (with my own lotus design) carved  from a natural slate slab which was found at Sandy Mouth in North Cornwall (approx. 60 cm long).




Om and Tam Stones

Some of the 50 Tibetan Om, Sanskrit Om and Tam stones recently carved and delivered to the shop at Samye Ling. Each one individually hand carved from natural Cornish sea stones.
Tam syllable used with kind permission from Tashi Mannox.





Hrih Stone

Another Hrih stone- this time carved from a Cornish sea stone found at Tregardock in North Cornwall (17 cm high).

Created for the shop at Samye Ling, but you can also order these direct from Hatch, Burn, Carve (message me or email hatchburncarve@yahoo.co.uk)



Elder Futhark Rune Stones

Sets of 24 Elder Futhark hand-carved runes in bags handmade by my partner.


Three of the sets were carved from stones collected around the North Cornish coast and one set carved from stones which I collected in the River Valency at Boscastle.

Tibetan and Sanskrit Om Stones

Each of these are individually hand carved in my workshop in the Scottish Borders from sea stones I had collected in Cornwall.

A Mani Stone from Cornwall

I was asked to carve a large Mani Stone for a garden in the West of Scotland.

On my travels down through South West Cornwall, we visited Godrevy beach and I found the perfect stone on the shoreline.











Approximately 60 cm long and a lovely stone to carve. Detailing carved with a 1 mm diamond burr, whilst the majority was carved using hammer and chisel.
