Welcome to AndySlater.com

Tree of Skulls by Andy SlaterI've been an artist / crafts-person since I was first allowed to use sticky tape and round nosed scissors; which is getting on for five decades now.

I've come a long way in that time and now use computer controlled machinery as well as a plethora of power and hand tools (including pointy scissors), for cutting, grinding, polishing, casting, soldering and so on. I work with wood, metals, leather, paper, plastics and gemstones. I am metal-smith, painter and sculptor (using both additive and subtractive techniques). I do casting in metal and resin, carry out hot, warm and cold glass work, and dabble with electronics, clockwork, and mechanical devices. Basically, if it falls within the realm of "art" or "crafts", then I've probably at least dabbled with it, and used it in some of my projects. I like to play, and on a good day, I get paid for it too! ;-)

I was once part of, and now own and run Brighid's Pagan Jewellery, which is where most of my jewellery is sold.

I also create model making components, mostly for terrain modellers, and make them avialable via archeotech.co.uk. These are mostly laser cut but include some items cast in white metal.
