Edward Leonard Fisher is one of the very few craftsmen alive who can produce Blue John Stone artefacts of such quality.

Working from his workshop in Derbyshire he produces the finest and most prized artefacts from the rare Blue John Stone.

Each ornament has been hand turned. Hand turned means that the craftsman holds the tool in the hand. Each piece requires a considerable amount of time to make and some pieces have taken well more than 100 hours to make from the raw material - much patience is required. Working Blue John Stone is a very skilled craft. One main difficulty of working with Blue John Stone is that the natural crystallisation of the mineral can result in fractures of the finished article. Edward has overcome this problem by using modern resins and processes which result in a perfect, highly polished, durable finish as evidenced by the items on display.
