Who We Are

The World’s Leading Body Casting Studio

First founded in London in 1996, we moved the business to Brighton ten years later to set up the UK’s first and only high street body casting studio. We have rapidly become the premiere body casting service here and around the world. Having won several awards we are recognised as highly skilled artisans, producing work of the absolutely highest possible quality. We are a full service sculpture business with over 20 years experience. Working directly with the public we strive to exceed our customers’ expectations and make the whole experience fun and enjoyable. Our client list includes numerous celebrities, royals and several other fine artists, such as Damien Hirst, who rely on our expertise to meet their exacting standards.

We’ll guide you on a fascinating journey through the whole process from first concept to the moulding experience and on to the completed artwork (and installation if required) keeping you informed and updated throughout. You may be involved as much as you like or just wait for your artwork to arrive.

 

Casting Metals and Carving Stone

Jamie works closely with our highly skilled bronze, iron and aluminium art founders and talented glass artists to produce perfect cast copies of our original sculptures. He will work on the wax casts before they get produced in the final material, using the lost wax process. He then oversees the patination process to achieve the perfect colours on the sculpture’s surface.

We have recently joined forces with a brilliant studio in Italy who will copy your original cast in fine marble, producing absolutely exquisite sculptures. We have also teamed with local stone yards here and in the USA who produce bespoke sculpture bases for us.

Andrew (workshop manager/digital guru)

Behind every successful artist is a great team and ours is headed up by Andrew, who has been working with us since his first year in university. He’s become Jamie’s right-hand man.

Emily (studio manager/herder of cats)

Carlsberg don’t make studio managers but if they did, they’d be Emily.

The Rest of the Gang (many hands make light work)

Our team of highly talented sculptors, mould makers and painters help us get the job done quickly and to the highest standards. We also revel in our role of mentoring and nurturing young talents many of whom have gone on to great things after training with us.
