Gerald set up his woodcarving business in 1986 after gaining a BA (hons) degree in fine art. His interest in woodcarving began while working for a leading furniture making firm, and then studying woodcarving at the London college of furniture, he has gone on to complete a post graduate certificate in education and taught city and guild students part time in the local technical college and adult education.
A member of the prestigious Master Carvers association Gerald and his small team have completed many commissions for furniture manufacturers, Interior designers, Architects and private individuals around the world.
With his artistic background Gerald is often called upon to assist with the design of projects and has spent many years researching woodcarving and furniture history to help clients to achieve historical accuracy and quality.
The workshop prides itself on its ‘hand made’ reputation, there are no CNC machines or mass produced imports. Consequently we are unable to produce very large runs of identical products. We do however make highly finished items using techniques inspired by the finest 18th century craftsmen. All our work is produced in our Norfolk Workshops, and while machining is kept to a minimum, with good training and efficiency we are able to make reasonably large amounts of work while keeping the quality and delivery times that we have become known for.
