COMMISSION AND DESIGN
A small selection of my original designs and creations together with some reproductions, remodelled and finished client supplied items.
These pieces were handmade, gilded and polished from scaled drawings taken from client supplied photographs or specifications.
Work on these client supplied pieces included construction alterations, gesso work and preparation, gilding, hand polishing, and final assembly.
Hotel Du Vin humidors and Wine Cellar Box.
My designed and handmade bespoke marquetry Wine Cellar and Cigar Humidor boxes are inlaid with various exotic wood veneers and edged with solid timber mouldings. The Wine Cellar box exterior depicts scenes from a vaulted cellar, the interior is lined with velvet, fitted with a leather bound tray and furnished with sterling silver wine accessories. My humidor designs are based on the facades of some of the first hotels owned by Hotel Du Vin. The interiors are lined with cedar wood and fitted with a secret drawer, cedar tray, humidifier and hygrometer.
