Stone Wine Rack PSEWR1 was hand picked direct from the Quarry in Portland, Dorset, on the world famous Jurassic Coast. Cut down to size with diamond tip blades, this medium sized wine holder was then ready for drilling. The stone is cored overlapping the edge slightly, ensuring there is enough stone kept to retain strength but also to enable the bottle to be stored securely in the curve. Holes approximately 90mm diameter which are perfect for wine bottles and larger sparkling wine bottles. Finally, the stone has been completely wet polished using a medium grade. This gives the stone a stunning finish and exposes internal markings perfectly. The Langham wine is not included and is for scaling purposes only.
This design is a one off and due to the time involved in drilling, I don’t plan to make any more of these. The reason being when coring, because of the overlap, water from the drill escapes in the gap and this is needed to be retained inside the core to keep the stone as wet and as cool as possible during drilling.

Stone Wine Rack 6PSWR1
A fantastic piece of Portland Stone core drilled with 6 holes as a wine rack. The right hand edge make this piece. Natural and rugged with an insight into the make up of this beautiful stone. Disliked by Architects and Designers as it is not clean enough, I much prefer to work with stone full of shells and fossils.

Slate Wine Rack 8SWR52
Remarkable slate wine rack This is a very popular design with a thin, narrow base but very tall in height. Holes are cored in a linear fashion.
Consistently grey in colour with a tiny amount of ‘fools gold’ iron pyrite near the bottom. This wine rack has a very unusual curvy side to it.
