Sculptural & Trail Features

Expanding on our lengthy experience in design and fabrication projects, we are excited to be setting up our own artisan workshop. We will be creating sculptural works for parks, gardens and other natural public spaces and continuing to create and install features for trails and important sites…

Natural & Vernacular Materials

From our bespoke designs, we will be casting glass, firing ceramics, shaping stone, forming metal and constructing with wood and, if the project requires, adding hard landscaping and ecologically intelligent planting.

Working With The Forces Of Nature

As well as static pieces, we are designing destination features that can be understood as works that involve nature’s energy: wind, water, and the passage of light. We are hoping that some of our projects will inspire people to get out and about, to experience the beauty of light in the winter months or a kinetic sound piece when the wind blows or the rain is falling. We are looking for imaginative clients that entrust us to use our creative minds, in tune with their project environments.

We Love To Create

Consequently, no job is really too small. We have worked for a broad range of clients, from individuals looking for that unique feature for their house or garden, to trusts that engage us to complete extensive installation schemes. As projects are completed, we will be adding them to our portfolio so please watch this space.

Project Management For Peace Of Mind

So many potentially expensive issues can be avoided with good project management. In the past we have drawn up full practical and financial proposals, delivered preliminary plans and visualisations, mapped trails with GPS to find optimal points for feature placement, produced beautiful site maps, interpretation panels, leaflets and brochures. We have a very experienced in house project manager and we are used to pitching creative ideas at stakeholder meetings. It’s all down to budget!
