Cup and Ring Marked House Sign

‘Stumbletree’- probably my favourite house name I have carved to date (45 x 15 cm). Entirely freehand carved from a 1 cm slab of slate. The customer had seen my work at Kilmartin Museum Shop and had commissioned me to make the sign with the addition of cup and ring markings based on those found in Kilmartin Glen in Argyll, Scotland.

Hand enamelled using professional white and copper monument enamel.

A Stable Sign for Josef

I based this design (©HatchBurnCarve) on a photograph of Josef that was supplied by the customer who commissioned this piece.

Carved from a hand cut reclaimed roof slate (30 x 25 cm), the design was freehand carved, the slate hand polished and then the design was carefully enamelled with professional gold monument enamel.

 

A Pictish Horse Stable Sign

Made for a horse called ‘Rio’, this stable sign was hand crafted from a reclaimed roof slate (cut to 30 x 25 cm). I based this design (©HatchBurnCarve) on the Pictish horse carving from the Class I Pictish symbol stone in Inverurie, taking into account the slenderness of Rio.
