Meet the Maker
Ali is an italian trained stone sculptor based in Edinburgh, Scotland and is known for making marble sculpture that deceive the eyes. His latest work is a full size free standing wedding dress and he has exhibited all over the world including London, New York and Hong Kong.
We partnered up with him to see if we could create an extra special sporran complete with marble cantle. The final results are absolutely stunning. These fully functional sporrans are wonderfully unique and if you have a specific design in mind, get in touch and Ali will be happy to carve to order!
I’m proud to have an amazing sporran from the Artisans of Scotland. I will celebrate your work every time and at all events in the swiss piping scene.
Their help and communication during the building process was perfect. This is one purchase that I made that far exceeded what I ever expected to receive.
Superb range of possibilities and brilliant production by Scottish artisans. Highly recommended on every front.
