Lewisian Gneiss is the oldest rock on our planet formed some 5 million years ago. It is found on the north west coast and islands of Lewis and Harris on Scotland.When you look at the folds and lines within the rock you get a clear sense of the strength of those forces, that the strata are not just a surface decoration but the history that marks and makes the rock is there all the way through. I want to make the surface of my vessels seem as though they are like the rock and that the pattern is not just on the surface.
