In between my commissions and the scheduled activity days I have been busy carving some new items for my shop, rather than take lots of individual shots I decided to show you what’s on the shelves. Hopefully this helps with the scale of the items as well.
Although I do repeat some of the words that I carve no two carvings are the same so if you see something you like and it sells before you snap it up I can re-carve but it won’t be exactly the same.
I sold ‘smile’ and the Welsh slate tea-light holder in front of the green man carving today and obviously the carved initials are always changing as I sell them and re-carve in the various stone that I have.
I try and be as creative as I can with the bookends so again while I might repeat motifs such as the musical notations and acorn/oak leaf designs they will always be slightly different than the previous incarnations. The pieces of stone are always different for a start!
You will be pleased to hear that I discovered a small piece of the red/grey Mitcheldean sandstone while tidying my workshop and so there will be a few more of the carved initials in this stone but be quick, these are very popular. I have also upgraded my dice, they now have red dots-if you want a different colour just let me know and my key-rings come with or with out a clip so you can attach them to your belt or your handbag if you want.
Please be aware that I am working to about an 8wk waiting list at the moment so if you want something made especially then please give me as much notice as you can to avoid disappointment.
