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.
