Here & Elsewhere: Ditchling Verses by Gerry Hinckley

Gerry Hinckley (1938-2017) always had a profound interest in literature and discovered his talent for poetry late in life.
At his request, this collection of poems has been published posthumously and becomes a lasting tribute to his memory. Proceeds from any sales are to be donated to the Ditchling Preservation Society and the Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, organisations he supported during the thirty-three happy years he spent in Ditchling.

‘Here & Elsewhere: Ditchling Verses’ is a personal reflection of his life – much of it spent living and working in Greece – as well as thoughts, incidents and observations of people. Most of all, this collection of poems was inspired by the natural beauty of Sussex and the landscape of the South Downs, which form the backdrop to the village he loved and called home.

Silver Galleon Brooch

This beautiful silver galleon brooch is a replica of an original object in the museum designed by Dunstan Pruden, a member of the Guild of St Joseph & Dominic, and comes in a presentation box.

The brooch is made by Dunstan & Pruden (Anton Pruden is the grandson of Dunstan), located here in Ditchling in the building which used to house the Ditchling Press.

The galleon motif was originally designed for a church warden’s staff and further castings were made into brooches. The museum’s original  was given to Celie Kilbride, wife of Valentine Kilbride.

Hound of St Dominic Pin

The Hound of St Dominic was originally a wood engraving by Eric Gill which became the symbol for the St. Dominic’s Press.

Materials: Wood & acrylic
Length: 7.5cm
Height: 5cm
