Went out for a wee walk (big walk for me right now!), Perth was beautiful today! Popped into meet Janet Eagleton, renowned sporran maker, to bend her ear a bit about sporran cantles, something I hope to start exploring soon, I've got some awesome ideas! Visited Boo Vake as well for a wee chat with the lovely Arlene and a browse of her quirky and colourful shop. Got all inspired by the worn sandstone with pebbles poking through on the Perth Bridge, ideas forming for my first box designs, another project for this year. I recently completed a commission for a set of boxes and I enjoyed making them so much and now I just want to make more, I like the lid thing, there's something so joyful about opening something up to see what's inside! And here they are!....
They were designed to celebrate the adoption of a couples two children, one box for each member of the family. The design on top is based on the landscape of Corrie Fee and Glen Clova, the centre point being the location of the couples marraige. The hilly ring holds the four boxes together symbolising the everlasting bond of the family.
Couple more kilt pins made recently too.... and of course! if you haven't seen it already! my (almost finished :/) scrubbed up kilt pin website!
