Our Methods














  

 Research and Design

We begin by researching from books and old plans and make site visits to photograph, measure and sketch.  The picture at the top of the page shows Kevin measuring an urn on a balustrade. The image below shows the finished miniature complete with one twelfth scale urns.

 

 

The Building Process

After making our own technical drawings the structure of the piece is built in wood. The exterior and  interior details such as columns and chimneypieces are added separately and are carved and modelled in lime wood, plaster and resins. Floors are made from various woods with some ornate Versailles parquet floors containing over 5,000 individually laid pieces. We re-create marble, stone and brick using paint techniques developed over a long period and wide experience. These trompe l’oeil effects, along with other traditional techniques such as gilding and French polishing, are exactly those used in full-scale work.

 

Project Management

Over many projects we have assembled teams of miniaturists who specialise in interior furnishings and lighting. Some are well known and highly successful in their own right, others are talented individuals drawn from non-miniatures related fields.

Thus we can offer a unique project management service to clients from concept and design through to furniture, lighting and even 'fresh' fruit and flowers.
