Tilberthwaite

This figure is a complete fantasy, inspired by a wonderful holiday in the Lake District. I call him a Cumbrian Stone Wizard. His throne is made from pieces of real slate collected from an old disused quarry in Tilberthwaite Ghyll - hence his name. His costume is embroidered and beaded to evoke the colours and textures of the Cumbrian landscape, not forgetting the irridescent beads on his head and shoulders to represent rain - of which they get quite a lot up there! His head and hands are made from air-drying clay and his dimensions are 7 1/2 inches high x 7 inches wide and deep. He is extremely heavy due to his slate throne. 195
