With roots in London and New York, the studio was founded in 2020 by Grant Wilkinson & Teresa Rivera combining their collective experience in fine art, furniture-making and design.
Born in Kent, Grant earned a Bachelor’s of Art degree from Camberwell College of Art (London). With over 10 years of woodworking experience, his past work ranges from fine furniture to construction for TV & film. Process and material serve as guides to his meticulous approach to design.
Born in New York, Teresa earned a Fine Art degree in Painting & Sculpture from Tyler School of Art (Philadelphia). As an interior designer, she cut her teeth in the London design scene. Her training in fine art, manufacturing, and design allows for a comprehensive understanding of aesthetics, absent from binding styles or trends.
At its core, the studio is a creative collaboration guided by materiality and traditional processes. Striving to create tomorrow’s heirlooms, by celebrating excellence in craft.
Since beginning in its East-London workshop, the studio now embraces the skill and expertise of British artisans collaborating with craftspeople from Norwich to North Yorkshire.
Recognising the value of traditional craftship, the studio embraces slow manufacturing principles guided by carefully sourced materials. Setting a precedent of quality over quantity with each piece made.
