Welcome to my website.
All my inspiration comes from the materials I use and I have found slate to be an extremely versatile medium that continues to amaze me even after working with it for over 10 years. The more people say that cant be done the more I try to make it. I am continuing to push the boundaries of what I can do, looking to other materials – glass and metal and other types of stone…
Everything I sell is made in this country by a small team based in Launceston Cornwall. Where possible all materials are sourced locally, please see my page on the website about the slate I use. Being small, and in control of all aspect of my products, means I can insure the quality and workmanship remains high.
I work the slate using mostly hand tools: slate snips, a hole punch, and a traditional slate roofer’s hammer. I have a slate guillotine for cutting straight edges, which leaves a chipped edge to give more character to the finished product. I also use a diamond-tipped tile cutter when I need a sharp edge, for instance on some of the garden features.
It’s a messy, dirty, dusty job, but all that is well worth the end result. I love to see my products travelling with their new owners all over the world, and get a buzz from creating items which will out-last me! I am happy you found my website and hope you can find what you are looking for, if not please get in touch and I will see if I can make it for you.
