    What a gorgeous piece of art, I'm so delighted with it and it's even more beautiful in person. It arrived safely and intact and really well packaged. Thanks so much John

    This was single-handedly the greatest gift I have ever given and that’s saying something! It’s quite large - in the best way - and truly magical in its form and construction. John was amazing to work with - he personalized the gift so perfectly and easily. We will forever cherish it. I cannot give him higher marks! What a talent.

    Absolutely beautiful, carefully packaged & transported safely to Australia ! Excellent correspondence & customer service. To my delight, John even included an extra little boat that hangs on the front, enhancing an already beautiful artwork. Thanks

    I had such a wonderful experience purchasing this lovely piece of handmade art. It is a unique piece made from found objects from the sea and I had been wanting one from this artist for a long time. When it became available in his etsy shop I acted quickly to purchase it. He responded immediately, and shipped it quickly from half way around the world. It was packaged like I've never seen before, insuring that the piece would arrive in perfect condition, and it did! I'm so happy!

All materials are reclaimed from the beaches, boatyards and harbours of the area I live in the south east of Ireland.
All carved elements, birds etc. are made from locally sourced limewood.
The mechanics comprise simple belts and pulleys made of birch plywood.
