18th century style panelling carved to complement original French work at the Rothschilds’ family home at Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. My team also repaired existing damaged panels and carved Corinthian capitals and columns, conserving and incorporating original material.
Altar for St Philip and St James’ church. Cheltenham, Gloucester, UK. With Illingworth and Partridge.

Pugin style carvings for the Lord Chancellor, Lord Irvine of Lairg’s, residence in the House of Lords, London. I thought you might like to see the famous Pugin wallpaper! The mirror frame was one of the pieces I carved as part of the contract.
Most of this traditional work is carved in English oak (although French oak is often
better to work with).
Sometimes it is gilded, silvered, painted or otherwise embellished which means working closely with other
craftsmen and women - many of them extraordinarily talented in their field.
Handled in conjunction with main conservation contractor St Blaise.
