He moved to London and studied at the Central School of Arts and Craftsbefore opening his own workshop. He predominantly made ecclesiastical silver, including pieces for Coventry and Guildford Cathedrals but his workshop also produced procesional robes for the Coronation. His apprentices included William Phipps, George Grant, Richard Costain, his daughter Clare and Sarah Jones. In 1998 Sarah Jones held an exhibition of his and his student's work 'Goldensilver 60 Years a Smiting'. He died in 2005
