Celtic Art Ltd, a history of craftsmanship since 1945
We are very proud that Celtic Art Limited is a second generation family business.
Celtic Art Industries originated in Glasgow in 1945 and started producing work inspired by the celtic designs of Alexander Ritchie and set out to revive the ancient art of the scottish silversmith. Celtic Art Industries employed several silversmiths who went on to become well known in their own right, Iain MacCormick, Malachy Gormley and John Hart. Over the subsequent years Celtic Art underwent many changes including relocating to the ‘New Town’ of East Kilbride and becoming Celtic Art Ltd as we are known today. Andy Hynd who trained at Celtic Art Industries under Malachy Gormley in 1964 took over the company in 1974 and ran it until his retirement in 2009.
With almost 70 years of accumulated experience and expertise we are a very well established Manufacturing Company. Here in our workshops, incorporating traditional methods and state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, our skilled workforce produce high quality, hand crafted, Sterling Silver and pewter Jewellery as well as undertaking Bespoke commisions.
Our rich history and experience has enabled us to increase our portfolio and strengthen our position as the foremost Jewellery Manufacturing Company in Scotland, if not the UK.
We are committed to continue manufacturing in Scotland and keeping alive the crafts and skills we have been so proud to inherit.
The aim of Celtic Art Limited is to build upon the excellence of design and craftsmanship for which we are world-renowned.
