GalGael build and sail wooden boats in celebration of Scotland's heritage - providing a focal point, around which a whole number of community benefits can unfurl. Engaged in this way, a wide array of pieces have been created, across a broad spectrum of indigenous crafts; from boatbuilding to furniture making, timber framing to blacksmithing, basketweaving to leather carving and granite carving. At times traditional, at others contemporary, they are united by a common theme of integrity of the natural materials used. Indigenous motifs and local history also feature regularly in GalGael’s work.
It was while working alongside Farriers in the Agriculture Industry, that I realised the potential that Blacksmithing had for creating functional, contemporary work.
Since then I have been working on combining these traditional skills with my original training as a sculptor to create new work.
Although I have used organic forms as a starting point for some of my work I often let the materials I’m using, and how it can be worked, dictate the final outcome of each idea.
