Elliott of London – British Sculpture was founded in 2016 by Young British Sculptor Charles Elliott. When it first began back in 2016, Charles worked on his own out of a small workshop in rural Buckinghamshire, handcrafting and forging metal to create horse heads and stag sculptures. Servicing a London Based Interior Design Clientele and local large garden sculpture needs. Each sculpture would take weeks and months to create, as he began to create larger sculptures, he realised he would need help. He asked Jonathan to assist him with his work. Teaching Jonathan how to use welder as they went, they worked on each sculpture together.
As the sculpture commissions increased and the Elliott of London handcrafted range of sculptures grew, Charles decided they had out grown the space in Chesham Bucks and moved them to Berkhamsted Hertfordshire. To give them larger outdoor space to show the sculptures to visitors and increase the team to help grow the brand!
Since then Charles and Jonathan have trained over 10 youngsters with no experience to weld, forge & manipulate metals.
With each sculpture having a vast amount of team effort involved, the pieces used to create the sculpture have already been bent and handled by a few members of the team before being handcrafted piece by piece.
Alongside the team of craftsmen, we have Sammy who helps Charles to takes care of all the office admin, trade shows, deliveries and keeping the whole team meeting their deadlines.
We now has over 15 outlets across the UK, we sell, ship & install sculptures internationally and create large public art to be shown worldwide.
From the start of the journey the British Handcrafted Ethics has always been at the heart of the company!
