The story behind Lancaster & Gibbings
After studying Fine Art at Newcastle Polytechnic, Jim Lancaster started
work in the special effects department at the BBC. Here he met Sarah
Gibbings who worked as a set designer. In the early 1990’s they first
had the idea of leaving their jobs at the BBC to set up their own
business with an aspiration to make a living designing and producing
their own work. In 1994 they first started selling their work at
Greenwich Market, London.
Having been so significant to the start and early development of the
business, in early 2004 sadly Jim's wife Sarah lost her battle to
cancer. It is a tribute to her that what she set in place back at the
start of the business continues to support the raising of her children.
Inspiration can come from many sources - an art exhibition, a current
trend, the English countryside. The underlying theme is the significance
of texture, and the way it responds to light, as well as a desire to tap
into quintessentially English design.
Their vision is to make pewter gifts that represent the finest in
British design, to remain passionate about design and quality, and
strive to maintain only the highest standards in everything they do.
They are committed to producing items that have that distinctive, very
English, "Lancaster & Gibbings" look.
