    It's on Ice 14 November 2018 | Comments (0)

    Drilled from a single piece of slate. Larger than normal. Designed specifically for Champagne and Prosecco. Chiseled edges. These coolers will keep your favourite bottles chilling nicely. Ice can be added to these and it won't leak, due to the fascinating DNA of slate.

    Available on the website now.

    Dancing Ledge 12 October 2018 | Comments (0)

    I took inspiration from the Dancing Ledge on the Jurassic Coast for this piece.

    Dancing Ledge is a flat area of rock at the base of a small cliff. A little scrampbling is required to access.  Dancing Ledge is so called becuase at certain stages of the tide when the waves wash over the horizontal surface, the surface undulations cause the water to bob about making the Ledge appear to dance.

    I could only manage this due to the size of the stone and thickness. I'm so pleased with the result, where the bottle of Stone Gorge 1908 appears to be floating on the rock.

    Whilst the front face has a sawn edge finish, the back is rough and rugged and full of shells, a complete contrast. The upper ledge can either be drilled again for wine or tonic bottles or engraved with a logo or name.

    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.
