Christopher Vickers is a specialist craftsman-designer of

Arts & Crafts lighting & metalwork and furniture.
With over 35 years experience, he takes his inspiration from architect-designers such as
CFA Voysey, Ernest Gimson and WAS Benson,
making pieces to their original archived drawings and designs.
With careful research and great attention to detail he works by hand in the best

Arts & Crafts traditions.

His furniture is made from homegrown timbers such as English oak, walnut and bog oak and

often features hand-cut dovetail joints, fine inlays and chip carving.
Lighting and metalwork is wrought from brass and copper, forged and riveted,
sometimes with chased and repousse decoration.

In 1987 he established his workshop and showroom in Frome Somerset.
Visitors are most welcome though please email or phone before your visit.

As well as making to commission, a good selection of items are kept in stock.
These are available to purchase and shown on this website with a price.
