The beauty of the perfectly imperfect. The power of sensitivity. Handcrafted objects, modern heirlooms, original one of a kind pieces. Respecting the history and tradition of a lost art, savoring the concept of a patina created by time, Carol has adapted the ancient process of water gilding and has applied it to the quiet beauty of a minimal, modern aesthetic.
Carol Leskanic is an artist and master gilder working in Bantam, CT and NYC. Trained in the restoration and conservation of ﬁne gilt objects, specializing in collaborations of traditional water gilding and contemporary art and design. Clients vary from interior designers Thomas O'brien of Aero Studios, NY and Amy Meier of Amy Meier Design, CA to ﬁne artists, Philip Taaffe, Rachel Feinstein and Richard Phillips, and private collections.
