New No.2 On Our Farthest Flung Cooker Leaderboard! And Beautiful copper domes!

It is a week for copper, Mrs N shared her splash backsand now domes & rails. John originally thought that the copper (a result of having to panel beat old lids) was something that he would have to live with until shiny chromes could be found. Now he has happily "become accustomed to her face" and wouldn't change her. I fully agree, the warm tones suit her and her relaxed 'outdoor kitchen' environment. 

Australian Aga range cooker with copper domes a review for Blake and bull servicesI am excited to see John's project come to fruition. An outdoor kitchen, with stunning details. Stained glass, a generous mantle, and his beloved rescued range.

"The stove had been abandoned for several years under a tarp, in a friend's backyard and the lids required panel beating and so we at last came to the copper. We both liked the look, so as a fill in until we could afford new replacements, we went copper. As it turns out, we have become accustomed to her face."

John joins the Farthest Flung Cooker leaderboard, taking second place by only 82 miles as the crow flies.

"Lid return springs Springsarrived only to find that they were not correct for our stove (not B&B’s fault) but the follow up service from Ian was beyond what was necessary. Ian’s service is what any business should aspire to. I cannot enthuse too much. Worth way more than 5 stars!" John, August 2019

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
