Who We Are

The World’s Leading Body Casting Studio

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 able to create work in a multitude of materials, as well as mount and instal if required. 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. See our Reviews.

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 work with a very talented local stone carver here in Brighton and we have recently joined forces with a brilliant studio in Italy. They will copy your original cast in fine marble or stone, producing absolutely exquisite sculptures. We have also teamed with a local stone yard in London and one in the USA who produce bespoke sculpture bases for us. We also have a local metal fabricator who creates bespoke steel and aluminium plinths and supports. We got it covered!

“Like Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst… the world will be talking about Jamie McCartney for a long time to come” – Art of England

Naomi (PA & Emotional Support Human)

Jamie’s personal assistant is Naomi. This is her office sometimes. Head chef and bottle washer, a woman superior in every way to the artistic goon she serves. Without Naomi almost nothing would ever happen. So be nice 🙂

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.
