The Mill Wall Plaque

This beautiful wall plaque has been made for a customer to go on an original stone wall in an old mill here in Orkney. The couple have bought the mill as an empty shell and are sympathetically restoring it to be their future home. Presently living in Derbyshire they have fallen in love with Orkney after coming here on holiday and are now working towards living here full-time. Michael met with the couple and used their thoughts as well as his own inspiration to create this piece. The plaque is made from Beech and then all the details are added. Studs and buttons turned from timber salvaged from the mill, a cog, carved detail as part of the centre depicting a mill wheel and touches of colour, ebonising and bronze staples.
