Happy New Year to everyone! We’re back in the workshop now after a really nice few days off. The Christmas rush was fantastic and exciting but very glad to be working more normal hours again, and also to have a tidy & organized workshop again! We’ve had several emails from very happy customers which definitely makes all the hard work worthwhile. Here’s one of our bespoke metalwork designs ordered as a Christmas present – a Humber 12 Weathervane. I think we met this customer at the Tatton Park Classic Car show, which was actually our first show – really nice that he remembered us from the middle of Summer. Most of the classic car weathervanes we have designed have been 1960s cars so we were pleased to be working on a much earlier model, I think its a great addition to our range. We experimented with having the Humber mascot on the front, exactly as it is on the cars, but we decided it would have been far too delicate, and wouldn’t really be visible once its on the roof, so we left it off in the end. This design was a joint effort, and we’re both really happy with it.
We’ve got loads of new designs to upload into the shop over the next few days, and we’ll be planning all the shows for the year ahead which is very exciting 🙂
