Welcome to Maud & Mabel, an art gallery nestled in the heart of Hampstead, London, where contemporary art meets a profound appreciation for craftsmanship. Established in 2012 by our visionary founder, Karen Whiteley, Maud & Mabel serves as a haven for art enthusiasts seeking unique, exquisite, and beautiful works from both established and emerging artists.
At Maud & Mabel, we transcend the boundaries of our physical gallery space, inviting a global clientele of collectors and designers to connect with artists worldwide. Our commitment to showcasing fine crafts is guided by a set of aesthetic principles that champion mindfulness, storytelling, and a keen understanding of each artwork.
We are devoted to seeking the profound, the simple, and the balanced, embracing a sensitivity to materiality and a profound respect for craft-making traditions. Our curated collections, featuring ceramics, wood, glass, precious metals, and stones, unite contemporary aesthetics and innovation with time-honored techniques. Grounded in the Japanese aesthetic theory of shibumi – the harmony of simplicity and complexity, perfection and imperfection – our gallery celebrates art forms that embody coherence in contrasting elements and refined subtlety in intricate artistry.
