We’re exhibiting at the Wasdale Head shepherd’s meet and agriculture show tomorrow so I thought I’d use our sheep and collie design to produce some coat hooks. It was originally designed as a house name plate for a lady from the Hodder Valley show, but I really liked the design so got several cut. I think it works really well as part of these coat hooks too, but not sure how well the design would work as a weathervane. The hooks are hand forged and TIG welded to the steel plate behind, and will be powder coated matt black next week. Would also be good for hanging dog leads.
And the other photo shows the decorative half of a dachshund house name plate ordered at the Eskale show – ready to be welded to the steel name plate. So some plasma cutting to be done before we load up the van and drive up to Wasdale!
