Tobermory Cross - Isle of Mull, Scotland
Item Number: MH120
Tobermory is an ancient medieval seaport at the top of the Isle of Mull. Across the channel is Lochaline, the site of a 14th - 15th century stone carving school that was associated with the nearby Holy Isle of Iona. This cross design is inspired by this ancient place and incorporates all the Celtic symbols (the unending knotwork, the maze and the spirals).

This mother daughter artist team own and run this family business. Both of them are gifted in carving and design. Each object they handcraft is inspired by an actual carved stone monument and has a reference to the time period and culture it was taken from. Once a monument is selected, the piece is hand carved by the artists and a mold is made. Each of the molds are cast with a sturdy cast stone material and goes through several steps to make it look as close to the ancient stone carvings as possible. These pieces are a wonderful architectural adornment in the home as well as in the garden. They represent a tie to our rich past and can be enjoyed for years to come.
