Patternmaking and Woodcarving Specialists

Ruth Davies provides high quality patternmaking and woodcarving services to the architectural, artistic, heritage and conservation sectors, as well as private clients. We specialise in traditional wood patterns for ornamental cast iron.

Excellent metal castings rely on quality patterns, so particular emphasis is placed on accuracy and detail - which will ensure that your ideas are finished to your exact requirements. A design service is offered for bespoke items.

With over 15 years working in conjunction with foundries across the UK we offer an experienced service in patternmaking for foundry work, arranging castings in sand or lost wax for iron, aluminium, brass and bronze.

As well as this we provide top quality woodcarving services – for architectural decoration, historical restoration, heraldic carving and sculptures. We have a particular speciality in the manufacture of Royal Navy ceremonial items such as Ship’s Crests.

Work is also undertaken producing moulds and castings in fibreglass, plastics, resins, rubber, plaster etc, as well as gilding and painting of metal castings.
