MEET THE PROCESS

With just a thought. Chris may design a new sculpture, or range of sculptures based on a new movie, an item of news or just a bright idea.

From concept to completion, A finished sculpture could take months to reach our show room here in the UK. It requires a whole team of people each with his or her own skills to make it happen. We often design sculpture for garden designers at Chelsea flower show, the process starts in June, just under one year to the show and the finished pieces arrive the following March ready for the flower show. We pride ourselves on our work and do our utmost to bring you the best product possible.

CONCEPT DRAWING

The first step starts with a rough sketch, Chris takes this to the studio where he and the rest of the artists go over it, change it and finalise it.

02

PAPER TO METAL

The next step is to make a mini sculpture, this helps get the whole thing into proportion. Then we make the life size sculpture, it might take a few attempts to get it perfect, once done it is polished and varnished and ready for shipping.

03

NAIROBI TO UK

We pack our containers in Nairobi, we have a great team headed by Wachira, he really maximizes the container space, filling in all the gaps. We then put the container on a train and send it to the port in Mombasa. Here it is inspected by Kenyan custom officers and Kenyan wildlife officers. Next we load it onto the ship destined for Felixstowe, via the Red Sea.

04

FINAL JOURNEY HOME

At Felixstowe it is inspected by UK customs officers, taxes and fees are paid then the container is loaded on to a truck and delivered here in Solihull where you can look and enjoy the sculptures.
