Overthrow: Handmade Traditional Garden 18" Riddle
PLEASE NOTE - Steve is making copper riddles to order. The lead time is 2-3 weeks. Please contact us if you'd like to order one.
We'd been looking for a supplier of handmade, traditional garden sieves and riddles for some time and it seemed that the craft had completely died out.
Enter Steve Overthrow, a man on a mission to revive the art of sieve and riddle making. We've partnered with him to make his beautiful sieves and riddles more widely available and are now exclusive stockists.
Steve sums it all up rather well;
"My aim is to make a tool that will last you a life time, and then the next person theirs. I have extremely high standards and everything I make goes through the strictest inspection to assure that it is a solid, reliable addition to your tool shed. Everything is made using natural, recyclable or bio degradable materials."
This is the king of riddles:
- 18" or 46cm with 1/2" appertures
- Handwoven mesh in copper or galvanized wire
- Steamed Beech rim
- Made to last a lifetime, or more
Choose either copper, which will bring benefits to the material you riddle, or galvanized for added longevity.
These items aren't quick to make and there may be times when an order has to be made up for you.
