FLOOR PLAN AND PRICE LIST

Utilising traditional methods of hand carving and wood turning; Dalton’s approach is instinctive. Inspired by nature, with a focus on bold patterns accentuated by intricate detail: Primitive aims to capture the essence of prehistoric art combined with contemporary craftsmanship.

Primitive is a line of wooden works produced by Scottish designer Kirsty Dalton. Handcrafted from cuts of natural wood, each piece is individually shaped and burnt free hand; using a process called Pyrography; complimenting the unique, natural form of this beautiful medium.

DALNASKHL DESIGN // GILLIAN RYAN – JEWELLERY SHOWCASE

Dalnaskhl Design

Gillian has always looked at her surroundings and taken inspiration from what is around her, feeling privileged and humbled by what she finds.

She is fascinated by texture and shape, enjoying materials which are unusual and tactile and appear as if they have they have their own story to tell. The Ayrshire coastline, where she lives and works, features heavily in her designs. As well as the beautiful scenery, rich in inspiration, the area is steeped in history and heritage. Coming from, and returning to live by the seaside has allowed her work to reflect this both through design and materials used, giving her jewellery an organic and natural feel.

There are two main types of work produced. The first is within the world of fold-forming, or forging, where each piece is individually made by hand and hammer, resulting in unique organic shapes.

The other area is comprised of cast shell pieces as components, where the original moulds have been made from shells collected on the local beach, with the lost wax method then used to produce the metal masters for casting.
