  • Latest Driftwood Lamps and Clocks

    Just finished these ready to upload to the web site.
    These came out quite nicely, I'd love to know what you think.







    I was partinularly pleased with this one - using an old pewter pot pourri jar lid and inset with sea glass to get a stained glass effect. Looks quite nice.







    ............and I just love making the stick lamps - they are so much fun!





    Thanks for looking

    Those are so lovely and inventive too. I love driftwood and have several pieces dotted around here.

      I like, I like

      I love anything in wood anyway but really like well made things from recycled or found wood. So often I see this sort of thing badly made. Not this time tho'If OK may pinch some of your ideas. I am down in Cornwall, not sure where you are so say if you mind

              Those are realy cool.
              Do you have to treat the wood so it dosen't smell of the sea?


              There was a guy at the Xmas market in Manchester this year selling this kind of stuff. Seemed to be doing well.

                They are so original and creative. I love the natural, organic feel to them.

                Do you sell in galleries?

                  No problem at all, I'm always happy to share ideas - I also browse online looking for ideas or inspiration. I'm not that far from you in Ilfracombe, North Devon.

                  No. Usually the smelly bits are the attached algae / seaweed so once it's dried out and cleaned it is fine. You do get the odd bit soaked in tar though - that can get very smelly if left too close to the radiator!

                  At the moment I sell through my web site, a local craft shop and craft fairs. Just put a few bits on eBay this week to see how that goes.

                      I pop up there every now and then as I have a sister who lives in Ilfracombe. Lovely little town

                        They are all fabulous - I love them. I've alway been very fond all things wooden in any case but I really like that these are so natural looking. I've never seen anything like the stick lamp before - it's great.

                        Wish you were a bit closer to the home counties - I'd love these at our fairs!!! Only problem is I'd probably end up spending any profit that I made.

                          I think they are fantastic, wish you were nearer, I'd love your things at my fairs.

                          I particularly like the first clock and the stick lamp.

                          Will have to have a look at your website!!!!

                          Well done.

                          PS Even though I live near the sea, I don't see that much driftwood, any idea why?
