Christopher Vickers

Christopher Vickers is a specialist craftsman-designer of Arts & Crafts furniture, lighting and metalwork.

In 1987 he established his workshop and showroom in Frome Somerset. With over 35 years of craft making experience he takes his inspiration from architect-designers such as CFA Voysey, Ernest Gimson and WAS Benson, and also makes pieces to their original archived drawings. With careful research and great attention to detail he works by hand in the best Arts & Crafts traditions.

His furniture is made from homegrown timbers such as English oak, walnut and bog oak, and often features hand-cut dovetail joints, fine inlays and chip carving. Lighting and Metalwork is wrought from brass and copper, forged and riveted, sometimes with chased and repousse decoration.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 2 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
