The project to gild 16 pillar pedestals is now half-way done and looking very sweet indeed.  As a gilder since 1981 this is one of my biggest commissions.

Working with John on the base pedestals of 16 grand pillars in the main banqueting hall.

Fuelled by hot tea and digestive biscuits it’s often great fun but always serious, dedicated work.
