Having started by making a one-off Slingshot as a gift for a close friend in 2008, with no intention of making any more, I was contacted by Murray Moss who had gotten word of this slingshot and he was interested in me making an edition for Moss Gallery in New York. The first edition of 30 Slingshots sold out in 10 days and so it began. I have since made hundreds of individually found, hand crafted and unique (no two are alike) Slingshots in editions of never more then thirty. They have been exhibited and sold world wide to variety of galleries, shops and private clients.
The hardwood y-forked branch is selected from fallen trees in English woodlands. They are then hand whittled and shaped, sprayed (each design is unique) and finished with a clear gloss lacquer. The rubber is the highest grade silicone rubber and the pouch is 2.5mm thick Italian leather. Each slingshot is GPS mapped to it’s original location from where it was found it in the woods.
The slingshots on this page are just a small selection. Most are made in editions of 30 and are each numbered and initialed by the maker (me). I also make one-offs and bespoke slingshots, I am happy to discuss any ideas you might have.
