PEEDIE SHELL BOX
This summer I started to add my own photographs and artwork on to 'found' items such as shells, sea glass and pottery that I have collected all around the Orkney shoreline. Sometimes I add these 'finds' to my original paintings but just recently I have been putting together small or 'peedie' gift boxes which include a mixture of my shoreline finds, each box is a unique artwork made up of several beach finds including one or two covered finds but also found sea glass, pottery and shells. Some customers have told me that they have added in their own collection of beach finds to their box to make it into an even more special keepsake! The box is made from re cycled craft board with a fitted lid and tied with my own design of printed silk ribbon.
HAND MADE CANDLES
I have partnered with my daughter Elsa Tait Designs who makes my candles in 'mock' paint tins. I have two sizes, large and small. Each candle is decorated with one of my artworks and comes boxed in a craft box.
SKETCHBOOKS WITH HAND PAINTED COVERS
These books come in three sizes, small, medium and large. All have hard board covers and backs, are spiral bound and include 55 sheets of 130gsm cartridge paper. I have hand painted and collaged each cover making every sketchbook a unique work of art. An ideal present for the artist or writer in your life! Each book comes gift boxed in a re cycled kraft box with lid.
DESIGNER TABLEMATS AND COASTERS
All my mats and coasters are individually handmade in the UK. Each one is made from hygienic hardwood with a high gloss finish using a specialist process which guarantee's a long-lasting print as the inks are fused deep into the surface. Every mat is heat resistant and non-porous with a smooth surface and dark hardwood back. Surface wipe only. If six or more are purchased I provide a re cycled kraft box with lid.
