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.
Based in 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. In addition studio visits and bespoke itineraries are arranged by special arrangement for clients both in the UK and abroad, to provide an opportunity like no other: to engage directly with the artist and see their skill in action.
This year I was delighted to add a string to the bow and launch Guilded on the international fair scene, commencing with the Crafts Council’s International Fair for Contemporary Objects: Collect, staged at the Saatchi Gallery in London during February. We will announce future events here.
In the meantime I invite you to explore this website as a taster of what Guilded and my exceptional artists have to offer.
