Scottish Highland lichen print treasure, memory & jewellery boxes!

A few years ago, I took a photograph of some beautiful lichen on a boulder in the Scottish Highlands… since then I have used it hundreds of times on my hand made treasure, memory and jewellery boxes, as well as on cards mugs and wall plaques.

Through a developed process I ‘melt’ the image onto the surface of the wood, or sometimes onto copper sheet first. I have made the lichen print in a variety of rich colour ways and the body of the box is painted in complimentary colours. Ornate metal corner protectors and an elegant latch complete these special boxes, and they can also be customised with a name, words or a date.

As I’m primarily a sculptor, some of my boxes also have a sculptural element; I add one of my sculpted relief plaques made in cold-cast pewter, bronze or copper.
