Contemporary Artwork



The range of artistic skills and experience offered by Taylor Pearce mean that we are capable of creating original artworks as well as conserving, restoring and copying existing ones. We have worked in collaboration with artists; manufacturing objects from their original designs and installing the completed artworks.

We have crafted artworks designed by Tom Philips including; ‘On Either Side’ (1988) commissioned by the Imperial War Museum and two new marble mosaic panels for All Soul’s Chapel at Westminster Cathedral (2003).

Conservation
Contemporary sculpture, because it is often constructed from fragile materials, can be particularly vulnerable to damage during handling and transportation for an exhibition. Many modern materials do not have a long history and their preservation is a fairly recent concern.

Lettering
We employ calligraphers and letter cutters, experienced in all types of stone, and have been commissioned to produce new works that have an element of lettering including; artworks, commemorative plaques and memorials, sun dials and even birdbaths.
