A few new hooks

I have been making a few new hooks just recently, some squiggly small ones and a few larger ones on a similar theme. I have also been at the horseshoes again, after being asked to make something functional as well as decorative. KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

I was recently asked to make a Christmas gift from the shoes of the clients own horse. This has reminded me that it’s been a very long time since I made anything new from a horse shoe, and it’s been even longer since I update this blog!

We have one of those deep kitchen drawers at home, the ones that everything that doesn’t have a proper home ends up living in.

Designs very, so don’t be afraid to ask for something that suits you.

As well as the horseshoe hoof-picks and the lucky recycled horseshoes that seem to be selling very well, I have been looking for something to do with the shoes that I have been given.

Horseshoes are a great material to make objects from, they have a natural texture that comes from the hard use they have been put to in their previous lives and are full of character as a result. They are also very easy to come by, I doubt there is a Horse owner in the country that doesn’t have a small pile of unwanted shoes kicking about their yard. Shoes can also have a special meaning to the horse owner, a lovingly crafted item made from the shoe of a favourite mount can make a lasting and special momento of a favourite friend.

Next up is a quick commission for an interesting house number made from an old shoe, I hope she likes it. Other numbers and of course house names can easily be made to order, just drop me a quick email for details.Horseshoe door number
