  • Workshop Open 28 August 2018 | Comments (0)

    After a week away in sunnier climates, I'm now back in the workshop catching up on orders. I've got a number of bespoke job in progress, including standard wine racks, gin ledges and a combination of both. I've also been progressing something overseas which I hope to be able to announce very very shortly.

    Light them up 01 August 2018 | Comments (0)

    After a few beers with some mates, one of which was an electrician, I've come up with a new design which very neatly incorporates a small LED light into my design. I focused on the ledge racks initially and was able to neatly house the light on the ledge whilst managing to conceal the cable from view. The result was so much better than I had imagined.

    This works extremely well when the bottle is clear and has indents or ripples on the glass. This is a great way to make your brand stand out and elevate and illuminate it from the rest.

    Here's an example using Welsh Slate with a bottle of Brecon Gin lit up on the ledge.

    I then tried this with a beer rack with additional lights to suit a patio or beer garden.

     

    Now that I've completed a few, I can tailor these to your exact requirements.

    Please get in touch to discuss you own unique design.

    With the Beast from the East and it's second smaller phase, the cold snap burst the main water feed into the workshop which halted all core drilling. This didn't stop me though as I was able to get on with finishing off a few smaller projects and then start to plan some exciting new ideas and projects which are in the pipeline.

    After mulling over some ideas for a number of years and trying to plan out a dream photoshoot, a quick 10 minute conversation with a new follower from Instagram has secured the most exciting photo shoot to date. I'm so excited about this and I just know it's going to be awesome. I can't divulge too much at this stage but it's going to involve some stunning stone and an iconic location.

    Great progress is being made on the Chelsea slate memorial with another load of hours being invested into this stunning design. I can't wait to get this one finished. Already planning the next one.

    Just as the weather has turned and showed a glimmer of Spring both Designers and Landscapers have been ordering some more unique pieces. The Pyramid water features are proving to be popular once again and I have a number of Window Stones and Water Feature Wine Racks being prepared and marked up ready for drilling.

    I've recently completed this carving of a slate bench which was a real pleasure to work on and customised to celebrate a designers 50th Birthday.

    In addition to all of this, I've also completed a new design which meets a customer brief of being able to display their wedding day bottle of champagne in an upright position and also storing a small number of bottles neatly. I just need to complete the editing on these pics and will be able to share these shortly.

    Happy Valentines 15 February 2018 | Comments (0)

    When you can't find what you're looking for then you just have to make it yourself.

    Two pieces of slate, same size and shape, both equally carved with half a heart on each, engraved with 'you complete me'.

    Symbolise the loving relationship between two people.
