Gull Skull Designs

Gull Skull pieces are all handmade by the artist Kathryn Parry  using a variety of techniques including weaving, crochet and stitch.

Kathryn likes bones and delicate bird skulls

In 2016 Kathryn moved to the remote island of Fair Isle in Shetland with her two children where she worked as an artist from her lighthouse studio. 

Kathryn now lives and works in North Wales and takes much of her inspiration from the seas and shorelines of Anglesey where she spends time drawing and beachcombing.

The Gull-Skull logo and name derive from the collection of bleached Bird Skulls Kathryn brought back with her from Fair Isle. Finding the delicate skulls on the grassy windswept Fair Isle coastline is a form of treasure hunting and Kathryn has spent many hours sitting and quietly drawing them throughout the Fair Isle winter when it is dark for most of each day with just a few hours of sunlight. 

The Gull-Skull collection is functional and playful, using coastal flowers, beachcombings and pebbles for its themes, reminiscent of relaxing days spent on windy sandy beaches hunting for shells.

Kathryn likes pebbles and the way the light dances its way through glittery water

All Gull-Skull pieces are 100% Shetland wool with hand spun details. All of Kathryn's wool is still sourced from the Jamieson's Mill in Shetland where Fair Isle fleeces are taken for spinning.
