Friday Boss: Kevin Baker of Silversmith’s Thomas Lyte talks candidly of preserving and growing British Silver Craft.
‘There were once thousands of silversmiths in Britain- now there are just a hundred. Kevin is trying to reboot an industry in which Britain excels- but appears to be neglecting’ says Simon Jack.
Kevin Baker explains: ‘We restore famous pieces of silver globally, we work for palaces, military regiments, and restore the FA Cup and the Ryder Cup.’ ‘There were once thousands of silversmiths in Britain, now there are around 100. Kevin Baker is trying to reboot an industry in which Britain excels – but appears to be neglecting.’
