From the Hands of History to You!

Welcome to Mantelpeace Studio! From a love of calligraphy and lettering history have come the designs you see in my store. I was introduced to calligraphy in high school art class and extended that introduction through a college art degree, graphic art career, and now to you.

Calligraphers, or scribes, have written by hand throughout history in the style ("hand" in calligraphy speak) indicative of their times: Uncial of the third century, Gothic of the ninth, or Italic of the fifteenth century, for example. All of my designs are handwritten and/or painted originals, reflecting the beauty of these historical hands, and related arts such as gilding (the gold!). It is both intriguing and satisfying to connect with those who have written the same type letters, centuries before me.

Vintage wood, beautiful pigment-based inks, and 23 karat gold are just some of the materials I use to produce gifts for wedding, anniversary, or that little one. Whether it is entwined names or commissioned favorite quotes, my designs are classic with a twist . . . and a bit of sparkle!
