Women in Science Rock!

This stone will be making an appearance at two shows in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017!

Hand carved/enamelled and cut to enable it to sit on display. Made using a Cornish beach stone measuring 70 cm long by 22 cm high (and weighing around 13 Kg).

You can see it at the Scottish Superwomen of Science show on the 25th- 27th August (Venue 67, Valvona and Crolla) and at ‘Women, Science is Not For You III’ on the 25th August at Venue 7 (New Town Theatre);

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.
