Glasgow Art Metals team of expert craftsmen and women ensure that clients receive personal attention at all times, and the result is a product which is unique and individual to each client. The service which Glasgow Art Metals provides is designed to create handcrafted pewter and brass nameplates to a high quality every time.
Glasgow Art Metals are makers of fine British standard sheet pewter and brass nameplates. Each one is bespoke and individually hand crafted to order, using the age old craft of repousse and chasing.
The business creates a wide range of bespoke pewter and brass nameplates that are handcrafted and produced in the UK and are suitable for all locations internally and externally. The pewter repousse work is supported by a lightweight modern material which is water proof, fire proof, inert and meets all regulations both in the UK and internationally, making them appropriate for individual homes, businesses and equestrian stable doors.
An advantage of the internal light weight support liner is that the plates can be supplied without screw holes and affixed with tape if desired. Various styles, sizes and prices of brass and pewter nameplates are available to order by email from the Glasgow Art Metals website, and from the studio.
With a small but highly qualified team of 5 enthusiastic designers and craftspeople, Glasgow Art Metals has a professional team, who are highly qualified to degree level in Arts.
Glasgow Art Metals has an expanding network of clients, situated throughout the UK and Europe, including private individuals, businesses, and pubs, clubs and restaurants.
The business is owned by Joe Boyle, who has worked within the Arts and Crafts industry for 30 years. He is perfectly experienced to look after the company, having previously trained at Glasgow School of Art 1972-1976.
