Testimonies from the custodians of our work
Our pieces elevate the sentiment of “giving” to an unprecedented level.
Moreover, the pleasure and satisfaction derived from a Wheathills masterpiece is shared equally by the recipient, the commissioning client and our dedicated craftspeople.
Such powerful emotional impact is achieved through the subtle, symbolic and stunning personalisation of each piece, so that our art becomes a physical manifestation of the feelings and experiences of the recipient.
The Giver: The memory box is absolutely stunning. It is beyond anything we could have imagined when we began the project. The box is a collection of memories in and of itself, and it is a repository of memories that holds (and will continue to hold) the most meaningful mementos and treasures of her life. We cannot thank you enough for your attention to detail, artistry and the unsurpassed level of excellence exhibited by everyone at Wheathills.

THE RECIPIENT: ”I saw the website by accident. I was looking for a memorial for my mum who has recently died from Dementia. I found the trinket box on the site and when I found I could have whatever picture I wanted I decided to have it made. I was not disappointed when it arrived. The trinket box is beautiful and just the right size for where I wanted to put it. It holds some personal items from my mum. I shall always treasure it. Thank you so much”
THE RECIPIENTS: What a delight, we are both extremely pleased with the design and execution of our hat stand. The craftsmanship stands out and is a real credit to your team. We are looking forward to our next venture with you. View the project
