  • Happy New Year 04 January 2018 | Comments (0)

    I would just like to wish all my Clients, both existing returning customers who keep coming back year on year and also new prospective customers a very Happy New Year !

    2017 was my busiest year yet with some stunning designs being produced. Some stand outs for me have to be the Poppy Window Stone Sculpture which now rests at Romsey train station and also the slate wine rack table lamp holder. This was some weight and once put in place looked like it had always lived there and been part of the furniture.

    Another few designs which proved to be very successful were my Beer Racks which demanded it's own website being spun up www.beerracks.net and also the Gin and Tonic racks releasded just in time for Christmas.

    All of these will be refined and developed further, as each piece of stone I source is different and quirky and full of individual character.

    I've managed to restock after a recent trip to the quarry over the Christmas break and have some really striking pieces in the pipeline. A particular piece I have my eye on is a great example of molluscan rudstone with a bioclastic packstone matrix, this is going to be an absolute beaut.

    With some big projects all ready underway for 2018 it's shaping up to be even busier with a highlight sure to be a 7ft window stone being hand carved for RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

    Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you're looking for a unique and special piece of slate or stone.

    Gin Time 02 November 2017 | Comments (0)

    The recently launched Gin & Tonic racks have proved to be very popular and the ideas and possibilities are endless with these.  I’ve had lots of bespoke orders with clients choosing a mix of various size holes.
    Here’s a few more designs and configurations recently produced.

    The Gin craze seems to be going from strngth to strength with new distilleries opening up almost weekly and more established brands introducing more flavours and twists on their orginail recipes.

    I thought I'd try and come up with a design for these Gin Fans to enure they can store their favourtie bottles in style. This was quite simple and just required merging two different sizes into one design. Large holes for the Gin bottles and a much smaller hole for the Tonic which is an essential part.

    Starting with just a couple of variations these have proved to be very popular and I've alomost sold out already.  I can configure these to your specific requirements and with more trips planned down to the quarry to source the exact stone required, means I'll have plenty more back in stock over the coming weeks, in time for Christmas.
