Stephen Pettifer

Stephen Pettifer trained in Sculpting, Stone Carving, Restoration and Conservation at The City & Guilds of London Art School.  Having worked as a restorer and trained under influential sculptors, Stephen developed an interest in English terracotta. By an extensive process of trial and research he refined the processes used to manufacture Coade stone. Stephen founded Coade LTD in 2000 in London before moving his studio to the Wilton Estate.

As well as classical work Stephen also undertakes more contemporary projects in various different styles and mediums specifically terracotta, bronze and lead. He has restored works of art for The Royal Palaces, Westminster Abbey and many Historic Houses.

Stephen continues to develop as a sculptor, combining his knowledge of materials with a delicate and acute eye for his subject, pursuing his passion for portraiture and sculpture.
