Over the past two decades, silversmithing duo Carl Padgham and Andrew Putland have quietly been creating extraordinary pieces of silver, ranging from intricate models of well-known buildings around the world, yachts and ceremonial silver, to installing the monumental centrepiece in the newest boutique hotel in London’s Knightsbridge, all from their workshop in the Kentish countryside. Their partnership has included the creation of one of the largest collections of silversmithing at any one time for the late Pope John Paul II.
