About Buck & Bear

Hand painted 23ct gold glass signs

Hi! I'm Carlie, i own Buck & Bear, i create hand painted bespoke signs for my lovely clients, each sign is made on the back of glass and uses 23ct gold leaf. This process is known as reverse glass gilding, or verre eglomise, and is an endangered craft, it is a traditional way of creating art and signage, and is far from the mass-produced art prints you see these days.

I love making signs for clients to give as gifts to their loved ones, each is personalised and created completely by hand. They make a perfect piece of colourful art for the home, and a memorable gift for special occasions.

Buck & Bear is based in Cambridgeshire, and delivers throughout the UK. I started my business venture a little over two years ago as a fun, creative outlet, and it's turned into so much more! The joy of my job is building relationships with new clients and understanding what they would like from their bespoke piece.

This, alongside creating a sign for 'The Mummy Diaries' Samantha Faiers, has been a huge highlight for Buck & Bear this year.
