Our Artists

We believe that their range of skills and experience is a match for anything the ceramic world has to offer.

Julie Nuttall began her career at the fabled Royal Worcester works, where she trained as a gilder under master craftsman Paul Wilson, and became the first woman ever promoted to senior gilder for the company’s world-renowned hand-painted fruit designs in its 250-year history. Our senior gilder, she is equally at home decorating figurines and sculptural pieces as she is putting the finishing touches to the most prestigious vases.    

Tony Young trained at Royal Worcester, joining as an apprentice on leaving school, and in 1972 he was awarded the title of ‘best animal and bird artist’ by the renowned ceramics expert Henry Sandon. He specialised in hand painting, turning his hand to subjects from flora and fauna to Morgan cars, and has painted special commissions for many distinguished connoisseurs including The Queen.

 Tracy Arrowsmith studied art and design before training as a ceramic artist, and initially specialised in decorating figures and other sculptural pieces before progressing to hand-painting plaques, vases and other presentation pieces. Her skill and versatility make her one of the finest ceramic artists working in Britain today, and she is equally comfortable working with raised paste and enamel. 

Phil Davis joined Royal Worcester as an apprentice caster in 1965, and within just five years had progressed to the senior advanced ornamental casting department, where he cast and assembled their most prestigious and limited edition pieces. His outstanding skills led to him being recruited to work in the USA for the renowned sculptor Ronald van Ruyckevelt, and he then spent some time in New Zealand before returning home to Royal Worcester, where he continued to work as a master caster before joining Chamberlain & Co to take on the challenge of casting our prestigious wares.
