I am a leather artisan and marble artist, a Heritage Craft member, one of eight professional marble artists in the UK. I work in my small studio-workshop in Brownston, Near Modbury. ROCWORX was born from a passion to handcraft beautiful and practical home accessories, aprons and vessels. Incorporating marbling in my textile work, my designs use every part of my sustainable and compostable materials: leather, sheepskin, organic oilskin, wool, cork, linen, vintage denim and repurposed copper thread.
