Creepie I

Creepie I by Gareth Neal is an extension of the existing Brodgar collection, drawing inspiration from traditional Orkney milking stool known in Orcadian dialect as a 'creepie'. To 'creep' means to bend down low, and the stools were made low to the ground for convenience. These stools also featured finger holes in the top so workers could easily carry them across the byre, as featured in this modern interpretation of the design.
