Here we offer you an opportunity to live your dreams!

A great idea have stroke you, but how would you make it come true? You browse through the shelves of specialty shops and approach professionals who specialise in certain field. But since it is so unique no one is there to help you realise it.

Restoration Work

If you are in a possession of something valuable that happened to have a time mark on it – we are the ones to help you.

It is not unusual to see interesting and intricate items turn up in our workshop. It can be an antique brass sculpture or a stone carved Deity. Sometimes we see expert wood carving or a piece made in paper-mache that needs real attention.

We fix and carve, drill and fill, sand, polish and paint those precious items to give them that missing exclusive look and lustre.


 

Sculpture

You can either choose from our list of available sculptures and bas-reliefs or you can order your own piece according to your vision and needs. Our sculptural works are done in a variety of sizes and materials and most of them are reproducible through a silicone mould and a resin cast.

There are many occasions when we take on a task of creation of a unique once off pieces which are completely custom-made.

Although we can work with wood, it is not our main specialty and therefore sculptures carved in this material are rear but not imposable.

We do not carve stone or cast metal though.

Popular genres in this category:

  • Full sculpture
  • Bas-reliefs
  • Mouldings and other decorative elements
  • Interior design and decoration
  • Theatre and film props
  • Function & wedding props and décor

Software of our choice is Pixologic ZBrush which allows us to mould and texture shapes in the way you would usually do in a traditional media, like modelling clay for example.

A complete 3D sculpture can be used in most 3D environments, illustrations, interior design and visualizations, motion pictures, animation or games.

3D printing is an option if you prefer to have a hard copy of the item.

If you ever wanted to rearrange your living space but were not sure if the idea would look appealing and comfortable when complete. Or maybe you wanted to see how your new product would look like before it is manufactured, then this is a time to use our 3D Design and Visualizations services.
