I have worked on a variety of commissions such as: Bishops Crosier for the Bishop of Stepney, a church communion set for The Carey Baptist Church, corporate gifts for the RFU (Rugby Football Union), wedding presents and many more.
– “Thank you so much for giving all your time, imagination and skill, it has been a pleasure working with you.”
– “It really is wonderful, the crozier! At its first outing on Sunday, it was much admired. I loved carrying it — it is satisfyingly solid, and makes a good thud when it touches the floor, but it is just light enough to manage. This is something that I will treasure for all my ministry. I am very grateful to all of you for using your tremendous skill to make something unique and special.”
I am able to work to commission whether it is a gift for a special person, occasion, a trophy to commemorate an event, a corporate gift, larger commission or an anniversary gift. (Did you know, tin is traditionally used to commemorate a 10th wedding anniversary as pewter is above 95% tin so it is an ideal gift.) Please do contact me to discuss a possible commission without any obligation. Before starting we will discuss what type of piece you would like, for example candlesticks and if there are other examples of my work that you particularly like the style of. It may be details taken from various pieces or you may already have an idea that you would like developed into my distinctive style and finally what budget you have in mind.
Before committing to the commission I will do some drawings so you will have an idea what the final piece will look like. Once a design is decided upon I will keep you updated on its development this may be through emails or workshop visits to ensure you are happy with how it is progressing. Some commissions can be very personal pieces and I am very mindful of this and will work closely with the you to make a design and ensure you are happy with the final piece.
