FAMILY COATS OF ARMS_

A family coat of arms is a special piece of history that is completely unique to you and your family. I strive to create the finest heraldic arms and crests that can be passed on as heirlooms for generations to come. These can range in size and shape, from small to large, and from high relief to completely three dimensional. 

Exquisite carving and painted to perfection

COMPANIES & INSTITUTIONS_

I'm are honoured to have worked with a number of prestigious institutions over the years, from the Chartered Institute of Insurance to the Worshipful Company of Joiners and Ceilers. I respect the history and long-standing traditions that companies have, or want to create. I will work closely with you to deliver an exceptional piece that showcases this.

William produced a stunning piece of work, which all who see comment on

BESPOKE WORK_

I'm always happy to hear your ideas for bespoke heraldic pieces. The example to the left was carved for the grandson of Roald Dahl, who wanted his new family crest, the Roly Poly bird sat atop a circlet of clouds, to be a standalone sculpture. The bird was carved in wood with a bronze cast tail.

 

No matter how big or small, I enjoy working with clients on bespoke projects to produce exceptional, custom items that will be treasured for years to come. 

William Barsley has so far carved two heraldic crests for me and both are exquisite, they pay careful attention to the desires of the client before the carving begins

RESTORATION & CONSERVATION_

Do you have a crest or heraldic shield in need of repair? I can help! However old the piece, I have an extensive network of experts in this field who we collaborate with to ensure that the appropriate materials and techniques are always used.

The example on the left is a 400 year old family coat of arms that I later restored. 

We entrusted Will with our 400 year old family Coat of Arms which had seen better days.Will’s expert and detailed craftmanship and attention to detail to recreate the missing parts was incredible.
