ABOUT ANCIENT ARTISANS

In the beginning there was THE SHAPE OF LIES   An artist run company born in an East Village storefront January first 1979.

For twenty years our passion for the antique grew along with the number of museum stores interested in our creations.  The Eureka moment came in 1998 when ANCIENT ARTISANS was formed as a design company catering to those special people who feel the magic of museums deep in their very souls.

Both entities are going strong still located in the original shop on East 7th Stree in Manhatten.   

THE SHAPE OF LIES  shop showcases emerging designers who produce their work in the New York area.  ANCIENT ARTISANS is in the shop as well as this online site.

We are always making new designs.  Please follow Ancient Artisans on FaceBook for updates as they happen. You can also join our E-List for seasonal updates and offers.
