Hatch, Burn, Carve joins the creative team at Talliston House and Gardens

Very pleased to be creating pieces for Talliston House and Gardens. These are the Talliston Labyrinth wall plaques, reproducing the labyrinth from ‘The Old Rectory’ standing stone which stands in front of the house.

These labyrinth talismans are available to buy at Talliston, but you can also purchase on-line via Folksy;

Please have a look at the Talliston House and Gardens website and be amazed! It has taken 25 years to transform a 3 bedroom ex-council house into ‘Britain’s most extraordinary home’.

Replica Pictish Stones for Inverness Museum

I recently hand carved these three replica Pictish stones for a schools loan box for Inverness Museum and Art Gallery.

This first one is the Ardross Wolf (a Class I Pictish Stone) from a stone found built into a stone wall in 1903. Hand carved into a reclaimed Scottish purple roof slate.

The second is the Ardross ‘Beast’ or Deer (a Class I Pictish Stone) which was found built into the same stone wall as the Ardross Wolf in 1903. Hand carved into a reclaimed Scottish grey roof slate.

The final one is the Crescent and V-Rod and ‘Mirror’ from the Knowe O’ Burrian Class I Pictish Stone from Orkney. Hand carved into a reclaimed Cornish roof slate.

Pictish ‘Elephant’/’Porpoise’ Wall Plaque

This Pictish wall plaque is from a carving on the Class II Rodney’s Stone at Brodie Castle near Forres. Hand carved from a reclaimed roof slate.

This has (rather lazily) been interpreted as an ‘elephant’! Personally I’m of the opinion that this design is derived from a porpoise or dolphin.
