Laconiko Garlic Olive Oil Hot Smoke Whisky Barrel Smoking Chips These premium quality wood chips have a superior flavour for food on charcoal or gas barbeques. The timber is sourced sustainably from woodlands across Dorset, often due to storm damage or an orchard crop rotation scheme. The wood is kiln-dried utilising waste hot air that is produced at a local biomass plant.

Kadai Firebowls These beautiful and functional barbe ue fire bowls are handmade from recycled oil drums by family workshops in India. Hand-cut metal plates are riveted in the traditional way for strength and durability and feature the same drop handles as the Original Kadais, and with the Gothic High and Low Stands you can get the best out of your Kadai.

One of their most popular and versatile olive oils, this works perfectly with pasta, on baked vegetables, sautéing seafood and vegetables, and even as part of a marinade in any recipe where garlic is an ingredient. This would include dishes such as shrimp scampi, garlic bread, or garlic mashed potatoes. For more information call 01409 251357 or visit CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE 2021 | 19

of giving

Find the perfect gift with a difference with help from the art lovers at Whistlefish.


very year the festive season hurtles towards us at an increasingly alarming rate. As summer fades into the distance, September sees seasonal adornments seep into shop windows. You’re thinking ‘already Christmas is coming around again’, and the perennial problem of finding the right gift for friends and loved ones arises. With that in mind, have you considered buying artwork as a Christmas gift? Art is far more than just a stocking-filler, and is a more affordable gift idea than you might think. Art makes such a unique idea for a Christmas gift. Half the pleasure anyone gets from receiving a present is tearing off the gift-wrap and being surprised. Who expects a beautiful piece of art at Christmas? The colours, shapes and form jump out at the recipient as the gift-wrap falls to the floor and the box is opened. The right art gift should not only complement the person it's intended for, it should complement their living space too. This shouldn't create conflict because people tend to surround themselves with a home décor that fits their personal style. Giving art as a Christmas present offers you the opportunity not only to celebrate the person you care about but also their home. An artwork received for Christmas can enhance a living space, and subtly alter the lighting and focus of the room. Everyone loves receiving a gift that completes a room. Artwork fulfils this purpose admirably. Whistlefish simply love art, whether it’s the feeling of excitement when you find that special piece that you just know will light up your living space, or the peaceful contentment you get when you furnish your room with the perfect picture. They are extremely proud of their artwork and they put their heart and soul into each print they produce. FOR MORE INFORMATION CALL 01209 314908 OR VISIT WWW.WHISTLEFISH.COM

MEASURES The ocean is so much more than a source of inspiration for artist, Mark Richards.


here is no doubt that Mark Richards loves the ocean. Yet, he was born as far from it as you can get in England! As a teenager growing up in the idlands, he saw surfing for the first time on a rainy Saturday afternoon TV sport show; the 1977 Pipeline Masters! In a moment of absolute clarity, he committed right then and there to a life involved in surfing and the ocean. He moved to Cornwall in 1985 after completing his engineering degree. He has surfed all over Cornwall and around the world since then. Mark now lives on the cliff overlooking the sea in Perranporth – a source of constant inspiration as well as a great place to surf. In recent years he’s rekindled his passion for open-water swimming, and not being one to do things by half, completed his swim around the entire coast of Cornwall in 2018. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, in 2019 he became the first man to swim from ornwall to the Isles of Scilly! urfing and swimming give ark a close-up and personal perspective on not only waves, but seabed features, cliffs, remote stretches of coastline and islands. His art and furniture are inspired by all of these elements. His mixed-media work uses beautiful hardwoods (from sustainable sources) and epoxy resin to evoke the beauty and feeling of the ocean. any of his pieces are based on specific locations such as the Isles of Scilly, Cornish beaches and surf spots. Much of Mark’s work is made to commission; he loves to make bespoke coffee tables and wall art to evoke coastal locations that are special to his customers. His reputation as something of a perfectionist is growing, which is why he has sold pieces as far afield as ew ork. f you’re interested, Mark would love to hear from you to discuss your coastal inspiration.
