Approach and philosophy
The capacity to accurately reproduce, re-design and re-interpret is essential, allowing work to be produced expertly and sympathetically within contexts of historic restoration as well as contemporary modern fabrications. Our team employs traditional techniques alongside cutting edge methods, producing work efficiently and competitively to the highest standard.
Our broad, specialist skill sets allows projects to be executed to maximise each member’s input. Responsibility for each aspect of a project is delegated according to our specific strengths with all work exhaustively scrutinised by our team before being released from our workshop.

These sculptures are full of imagination, wit and intelligence; they are little works of art absolutely in the spirit of the mediaeval originals
I came across the guys at LSC when looking for finials. Turns out it’s not easy to find finials, particularly if you have in mind anything other than globes, pineapples or lions! From start to finish the team were responsive and highly creative. I felt involved in the design process and was encouraged to be so. The pieces as installed look marvellous. I highly recommend them. Since the sculptures have gone up, a Bittern was heard booming in the marsh opposite for the first time in 9 years, So they have truly brought back the nature!
