Works of Art in Lacquer, Gilding, Penwork and Faux Finishes is a venue for decorative artists to exhibit objects which they have created.

Most of the objects you see are samples which the artists will recreate on a "custom order" basis. All are unique; no two are ever exactly the same. Each is truly a "work of art", signed by the artist who created it.

The artists are masters and journeymen in decorative arts and faux finishes, employing techniques that have taken years to acquire and perfect.

For further information on custom ordering or questions on how to join the guild, please contact
