I founded Guilded in 2010 to promote exceptional multi-disciplinary British artistry and craftsmanship to the world. In naming the company I pay homage to the tradition of Guilds, the model of which likewise facilitate the development of skill and whose members benefit from their accreditation.
Today I specialise in working with innovative British artists and studios who, drawing on traditions of craftsmanship, combine and experiment with materials, develop new processes and introduce a strong conceptual approach to create innovative work spanning the fine and decorative arts.
Run from Dorset, in the South-West of England, Guilded fully engages the potential of digital technology to reach and communicate with discerning clients all over the world. However, it is the added value of Guilded that sets it apart: drawing out the skill of artists, providing a reassuring professional framework through which to procure from or engage an artist, and the knowledge and experience that ensure the highest standard of unique craftsmanship and service.
Guilded engages professional photography, video, drawing and sampling, and delivers worldwide with internationally known art shippers with whom we have established relationships, enabling us to carry out the simplest delivery or the most complex installation seamlessly.
A significant element of Guilded’s service is in commissioning original work with artists for private clients and decorators. Due to confidentiality agreements we are unable to disclose these publicly. Please refer to the artist page ‘original commissions’ for images. These give you a feel for how I draw out the information I need (taste, cultural and physical context etc) to deliver aesthetically and visually sophisticated art commissioned and worked up with artists within and beyond my immediate fold.
Guilded delivers you art and furnishings that are unique, innovative and tailored to your space. Please contact me directly to learn more about the process.
