Our richness, tradition and beauty

My gilded works strive to become beautiful objects because I create the fine outlines entirely by hand, using NGS custom made brushes. I then lay the gold on by hand with a special gilder’s tip, in the genuinely traditional way. The result holds a special character and richness derived from a passion and love of the material and craft.

I work alongside Tobias Newbigin on larger gilding projects ensuring fast turnaround and superb quality.

A Heritage in Gold – The Gold Leaf Sign

Expertise and Tradition is kept alive by correct principles handed down from master to student.  Love what you do … then cover it in gold.

The first 10 years of my career was spent making 24ct gold leaf sign panels and windows, for the 5 major London breweries – nothing else… just gold.  Imagine that, a kid of 21 going straight into pub sign gilding 7 days a week.

Gold with red shade… gold with black shade.  It was heaven.

It’s fresh in the memory and still in the blood.

The Sublime Power of a beautiful Gold Leaf Sign

The power of 24ct gold has on passers by is what makes it such a key asset to a growing business and signwriter’s tool set.  From all angles it is visible in the most spectacular way … the sun never bleaches it from view, in mid afternoon it glows much as it does at dawn and under artificial lighting it becomes gloriously luminous..

.

‘Nothing conveys as much impact on a window as gold leaf.’ Raymond. J. Le Blanc. 1978:7

.

We believe it is true… gold leaf is the ultimate visual statement and yet affordable.  It remains the very best way to enhance the spirit of success and sensational visual appeal.
