Who We Are, What We Do & Why We Do It?
MT Artisan is a gateway to traditional Eastern culture through authentic hand-crafted artwork.
“MT” stands for “Modern-Traditional” – MT Artisan provides modern artwork which is made using traditional methods in the Far East. To understand what MT Artisan is about, you only need to look up the word “Artisan” in a dictionary or on Google.
What Does Artisan Mean?
1. A worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand.
2. A person that produces something in limited quantities, often using traditional methods.
These definitions capture the essence of what we do perfectly. We specialise in decorative art pieces which are hand-made in highly limited quantities using traditional methods by skilled artisans.
In the modern world where so many things are made by machine, it can be challenging to find decorations for your home that feel truly special. Our artwork is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to explore different cultures and has an appreciation for products that are crafted by hand with genuine skill and affection to make them truly special.
Our cultural artwork is steeped in tradition and meaning making it the perfect luxurious decoration for you home. With lots of different sizing options and colour schemes available, our beautiful art pieces give a timeless feel to any space. Equally suitable as framed wall pictures for your living room or wall art for your bedroom, our artwork can brilliantly complement the interior design of your home. Our smaller frames feature a standup back so that they can be used to decorate desks, mantel tops, or window sills, as well as be wall mounted.
MT Artisan provides access to stunning artwork sourced from the Far East, so that you can enjoy the incredible craftsmanship of skilled artisans from different cultures. We mainly operate within the UK, however we do have customers from all over the world. All of our artwork is articulately and painstakingly crafted by hand, thus making ideal hand-made gifts for a loved one.
Every piece in our MT Gold Art Collection is made from 24 Carat pure gold leaf. If you would like to know more about how gold leaf art is made, please scroll down for more information.
Every single piece in our MT Gold Art Collection is made from 24 Carat pure gold leaf. These wonderful art pieces are hand-crafted in the Far East using a traditional method from Vietnamese villages which has been passed down through generations of families to produce the finest artwork.
How is gold leaf art made? The gold leaf is produced by hammering bars of pure gold into very thin foil sheets. These gold leaf sheets are then cut to the appropriate size and shape and skilfully assembled by hand into a beautifully framed art piece. The layers of gold leaves create a three-dimensional structure which gives the art an amazingly life-like feel. These pieces are produced by specialist artisans in Vietnam in highly limited quantities due to the remarkable skill and length of time required to create each art piece.
All of the pieces in the MT Gold Art Collection include a Certificate of Authenticity from the laboratory in Taiwan where they are tested, proving the purity of the 24 Carat gold leaf in the artwork.
