I make decorative items out of wood, including mobiles based on poems, jewellery boxes and bookends.  The mobiles below are two recent items but you can see much more at either our Gatehouse or our Kirkcudbright shop.

I’m showing a couple of recent items below.

Swan Reflection

“This is how we live,
Coming and going through each other.”

This mobile was inspired by Imtiaz Dharker’s poem “Invisible” in which a swan studies its reflection in the water, seeing in the image a lost (dead) lover.

Thought fox


This mobile is based on a poem by Ted Hughes in which the fox is not only an elusive and hesitant creature but also a vagrant thought and an almost-poem.  You can see the mobile at our Kirkcudbright shop

    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but,
    I’d like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.

    Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
