• Gypsy Peg

  • availability:


  • Hand-tooled, whittled & carved, each wooden peg has its own character & often function. My mother once gave me a gypsy peg: split wood with a band of thin brass at the top with tiny nails to keep them together. A utilitarian object that reminds me of another time where crafts were an everyday part of life‰۪s objects, I imagine them travelling in an old chipped enamel bowl to be used whilst camped by a river with colourful painted wagons and full, many layered skirts all pegged up on lines between the trees.

    Finish: timber & aged brass

    Measurements: 14L x 1.5w cm.
