I’ve been carving Mani stones with exclusive detailing for Curious Egg– a new artist-curated lifestyle store that brings together art, fine craft and interiors.
Lorraine from Curious Egg has written a great piece (entitled ‘The Stone Hunter’) about her visit to my workshop;
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.
Delivered two of my Mani Stones to Samye Ling Tibetan Buddhist Monastery this week.
Very chuffed that they are stocking my work- it’s an amazing place.
These are hand-carved from large Cornish sea-stones which I collected from beaches in North Cornwall.
Now available to buy in the Samye Ling shop.
You can also buy direct from me- message me here, or email email@example.com
The Stupa at Samye Ling.
In the studio/workshop- a new Mani stone begins to emerge. Relief carved into a natural piece of Cornish slate.
Now SOLD, but please contact me if you would like one as I make these to order.
