Before moving into conservation, many of our team trained in fine art, sculpture or craft trades such as gilding. This means that we can undertake a wide variety of work of an artistic nature.
If a sculpture or features has been stolen or mislaid, we can provide hand drawings from photographs, or recreate sculptures starting with a small maquette.
We can take the project to fruition by casting or carving the lost item and hand-finishing. If replication of a special object is required, we can take moulds in-situ so that the original never has to be disturbed.
If you have BIG artistic ideas, we can help you manifest them with our skills and knowledge of how materials change and age.
Our sculpture services include infilling and lettering, gilding, faux-finishing, marbling, drawing, sculpting, photography, carving and casting.
THE HOUSHIARY CHRISTMAS TREE, TATE BRITAIN
Sculptor Shirazeh Houshiary was invited to create the 1993 Tate Gallery Christmas Tree.
Houshiary was inspired by the natural qualities of the tree itself such as texture, colour, smell and shape.
In 2016, the tree was recreated with the help of Antique Bronze sculpture services team who gilded the roots for this highly popular exhibit.
