Miniature sculptures in progress
My miniature, poetic Japanese Netsuke-inspired sculptures are cast in bronze and are set with a variety of precious stones.
Here the little Owl and Pussycat are being set with black rose-cut diamonds and white brilliants.
The precious little pieces are very labour intensive and each piece takes a few weeks on production.
Tortoise from the great race with Hare, is being set with Rubies. In this picture, the bronze is prepared but as yet, un-patinated. The finished Tortoise has a cold green verdigris patina mounted upon a block of sandstone.
The collection of miniatures is growing steadily they also all have the potential, as maquettes, to be made to full size sculptures in bronze.

Always equal to yourself, a goldsmith … !!!
I hope one day you hand-tighten it and so can you steal a little of your donation … !!!
