Variation you will never find two that are the same, All our sculptures are unique with slight variations in shape and colouring resulting in a truly stunning piece that is as individual as the client who orders it is to us.
This also extends (if chosen) to the wooden bases they sit upon. We only use reclaimed or naturally sourced driftwood, and each piece is chosen to match the character of the sculpture that has been commissioned.
Bespoke projects and commissions: We can mostly undertake any sculpture that is not listed in our catalogue.
You can immortalise a favourite pet in clay, we can work from photos to get a realistic likeness.
Natural Base materials: Some of our sculptures use natural materials for their bases such as hard woods or natural slate.
So with this in mind, please understand there could be some variation as we cannot always source the same materials. We do however, make sure that every sculpture represents the same quality and finish as those pictured, and matches it as closely as possible.
This does however mean that every sculpture is totally unique .
