Over the last few years the number of new carvers has grown, with many of these well known carvers gaining commissions. As a dealer I have helped a few carvers along the way with help and advice, I am always happy to chat with new carvers and put them in touch with other carvers. Many current day carvers work is in as much in demand as the carvers of the past. Remember though not all new works are regarded as contemporary, while we wholeheartedly support artists we condone those that carve to deceive buyers, by adding superfluous signatures.
If in any doubt ask, even if it’s not from us we would rather you purchased legitimate works than hand over your hard urned on a fake.
