Wherever possible we will try to use traditional methods of reproduction using similar wood to the objects in hand. It is very important to us to create these carvings in a style appropriate to the period of the piece, producing an holistic repair for the object in question.
Over the years we have worked on a variety of carved objects including Grinling Gibbons’s highly ornate carvings at Kensington Palace, Adam architectural elements, Kent frames and furniture and more modern Arts and crafts objects.
In February 2021, following a two year conservation project, we reinstated the Grinling Gibbons carvings in the Orangery at Kensington Palace, a short video about the work, made by Historic England, can be viewed on youtube: https://youtu.be/tcanNw9DzgI
We also undertake frame reproduction, lettering and sample pieces as public engagement objects.
