Don carves and hand polishes the beautiful Serpentine stone which has been worked on the Lizard for a long time. He aims to complement the established Lizard turners and shapes each piece by hand, eye, soul, and sometimes by foot.

Don works as sustainably as possible and respects the flora and fauna of all the areas he visits to source his stone, treading as lightly as possible upon the earth. Mainly extracted from hidden coves his base pieces once found are taken to a secret field where they are shaped with unpredictable aplomb giving each piece an unreplicable uniqueness.

Serpentine - a Hydrous Magnesium Silicate is a rock that is chemically simple but structurally very complex. The hardness of the stone serpentine measures from 2.5 to 4.6 - Diamond rates 10 on the same scale. Serpentine has earned its name from the patterns within the rock which resemble snakeskin.
