    Default Come Visit My Gift Shop.

    Some of my family and friends have no use for jewellery. So to think of gifts for special occasions taxes the imagination somewhat and I resort to making toys, desk toys, ornaments and dust collectors.

    Rather than waffle-on, I have scanned-in for you a selection of twelve prints from my photo albums. Some were even reproduced on a copier, a cheap option in the days of film, but looking a bit thin. They are in my updated album as I could not fin a way of posting that number here..

    Tape Dispensers, Sticky Note Organisers, Stamp BookOrganisers,
    Signature Blotter, Rat Letter Opener, Note Pad on A Roll.
    Magnetic Paper Clip Boxes, Flock of Doves Paperweight After Picasso,
    Fimo Puppet Heads, Fancy book Marks, Childs Belt, Book End. Dennis.

    I think my favourite is the child's belt buckle - but they all show your usual flair Dennis - lovely work.

    Wonderful Dennis, there must have been some very happy recipients!

    I think I like the signature blotter most, as always such tidy and impressive work........not sure I'd want to bump into the Fimo heads on a dark night!!

    Thank you all for your kind comments. The stick man is made from brass with lashings of silver solder, hence the silver knees etc. It was taken from a book of African sculptures which predate Giacometti.

    My favourite piece in your gift shop is the letter opener, with that I would happily open even junk mail just for the fun of it.

    Thank you, but sadly my son lost that during a house move. I later replaced it with a mouse one, but it was never the same. Kind regards, Dennis.
