A lot of the carvings are done on Driftwood which I find along the coastline. I tend to CliffComb rather than BeachComb! All the pieces of wood are from Scatness, Sumburgh. I dry them out then look to see what kind of design would suit the shape of the wood. The only part to be treated is where the design goes, the rest is left natural as it came up on the shore.
