It is a demanding process with exacting expertise required at every stage of the shoe’s creation – from the last maker who carves the lasts to the client’s individual measurements; the pattern cutter and closer who transform detailed two-dimensional designs into the leather shoe uppers; and finally, the shoemakers, who bring all of the elements together to create a comfortable, stylish shoe.
From seeing a client for the first time to delivering the finished shoes, the entire process takes some six months for the first pair, allowing time for a number of fittings. Once Carreducker has the fit, subsequent pairs of shoes can be ordered via email or telephone and are delivered in around 12 weeks.
Carreducker deliver the bespoke shoe service at Gieves & Hawkes, 1 Savile Row, London and the bespoke hunting and shooting footwear service at James Purdey & Sons, 57-58 South Audley Street, London.
I do love to make flasks, and it is a rare craft indeed to smith stainless steel. There are so many chemical and metallurgical details to consider when making, so these cantinas are great items. Brazed with food grade silver solder, passivated, etched and finished with a brass stopper and catch chain.
These gorgeous handblown glass vases are made by myself, Catriona R. MacKenzie. I have spent the last 12 years perfecting my glassblowing skills, and each one of my pieces is lovingly made. They are available in lots of stunning transparent colours.
I blow each vase by hand in the studio, so they are all individual and unique. They are lovely on their own, or in a group.
Each vase is cooled down in a kiln overnight and given a ground base. It is then decorated with a resist and a frosted drizzle design is sandblasted onto the exterior. The resist is then removed, and a protective solution is rubbed into the surface to repel dust and grease marks.
No two are the same, making it a truly original gift. They are roughly 6.5 inches tall (they vary due to being a handmade product) and each one comes in its very own gift-box made from Eco-friendly cardboard, so that’s gifts sorted!!
NB – Not suitable for dishwashers!
To keep surface clean, dust with a glass-cleaner, and rub a tiny amount of vaseline/baby oil into the surface.
Life size figurative sculpture
I make by hand and to order wooden life size and life like figures. These are suitable for permanent outside installations and are ideal for ornamenting buildings, gardens and outside meeting places. Any figures in any pose are possible and of any living person with their consent.
I also make public memorial statues and private garden memorial effigies.
The cost of a single life size adult starts from £3,000

Large Racing Rocking Horse ‘Hero’
Meet ‘Hero’ ….. because everyone needs a Hero.
This beautiful large rocking horse has been designed and made with love.
Our latest design has been carved from Tulipwood with extra carving, the legs look like the horse is moving and although the horse has been stained, the front leg and blaze have been left natural wood, it really is stunning.
The saddle and bridle are well designed replicas of racing tack.
