Phil Joyce - Gilder

Phil Joyce has spent many years perfecting the art of gilding and antique restoration. His work encompasses many different processes, taking time and plenty of attention to detail. 

Phil's commissions include one of the longest established classic furniture specialists in the UK. Phil’s techniques include adding a gesso mixture, sanding down and applying clay, before burnishing. Finally, Phil gilds the item carefully, highlighting selected areas with agate stone and added patina for toning, resulting in a stunning, antique finish.

To see Phil’s work or commission a piece of gilded furniture restoration, head down to Cockington Court where you can find him at the Cob Barn.
