Leszek Sikoń Making hand forged knives and custom objects in only the highest quality materials is the core of my practice, precision in craft is fundamental. Nowadays shops are filled with mass made products that are cheap, disposable and poorly designed – customers have a hard time forming a connection to them. By combining modern design with tradition, I strive to create artworks (often in the form of knives) that speak of quality, in turn becoming precious to their owners.Locked Pro Plan feature
The Elmley Foundation is an independent grantmaking charity which supports the arts in the counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The Foundation was endowed by the late Countess Beauchamp of Madresfield Court near Malvern. She was the Danish-born widow of the eighth and last Earl Beauchamp who was known as Viscount Elmley until he succeeded his father to the House of Lords in 1938. The purpose of The Elmley Foundation is to continue the tradition of encouragement of all forms of the arts, crafts and design which has been associated with Madresfield Court over many generations. In doing so, the Foundation perpetuates Madresfield’s considerable influence on the cultural life of Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
