VCD Silversmiths is a family run silversmithing business situated in a seventeenth century watermill on the banks of the river Nore in Thomastown, Co.Kilkenny, Ireland.
Master silversmith, Peter Donovan and his daughters Vicki Donovan, silversmith, and Denise Donovan, goldsmith, have been producing works of art in this ancient craft for over four decades.
Our combined experience has produced an eclectic variety of unique commissioned works both nationally and internationally.
Inspiration is derived from both Celtic designs and the more contemporary styles. All our silverware is completed in close liaison with the client and/or architect to fully reflect the visual impact and intention of the work.
We use ancient traditional skills to create our silverware. These skills, including repoussé, hand raising and enameling, have remained the same for thousands of years and have been passed down from master silversmiths for generations.
Adjacent to our private workshop is VCD Metalworks, our tutorial facility. The proximity of this studio to our workshop ensures the best possible professional tuition.
We welcome any queries you may have with regards to our work.
