This is just a little bit about me and where my passion for hand crafting began.
Where It All Began
I started making hand crafted sticks with my Grandfather when I was around 10 years old using roe deer antler we found around the farm, and this is where it started. It was only when I read an article in a 1984 Shooting Times magazine, about a gun stocker, making walking sticks from lovely vintage broken sticks he was replacing, doing so predominantly in beautiful walnut wood.
Although I started making sticks with my Grandfather, my biggest help and inspiration was from my Father. My Father was a terrific commercial artist and I was grateful to have always had lots of encouragement from him. In later years, he used to spend hours and hours sitting in my workshop, watching me as I intricately carved my sticks.
Using the experience of my Grandfather, with the encouragement and inspiration of my Father, I have since been lucky enough to have supplied my sticks to some of the most famous gun shops and people around the world.
In the Spotlight
For thirty-five years, Simon has worked his magic with wood; gently carving and coaxing the pheasant, the salmon or the hare from deep within its natural beauty. Birds, fish and game or classic working dogs come to life with a delicacy of expression that is rooted in Simon’s deep understanding of the form and shape of the animals and birds that he carves.
