I have been a freelance modelmaker since 1992 ..... My work
is generally constructed from foamboard, card and paper - I do
not use machine tools or have a workshop setup, but I will
attempt anything I consider possible.

As part of a promotional bid to secure funding and support for
the project, and to assist in the planning and development of
the design, the group commissioned a model, which would
show the existing theatre, and how the proposal would look
when completed

We produce timber models that transform and unite the
architects essence of style and function. The tactile and
aesthetic qualities of timber within model making, offer
endless creative opportunities.

Almost 30 years ago, a fellow modeler introduced me to the
concept of using corrugated cardboard as a model building
material.  Since then I have used cardboard exclusively for all
my models.

moulding

A mold or mould is a hollowed-out block that is filled with a
liquid like plastic, glass or metal. The liquid hardens or sets
inside the mold, adopting its shape. This is when 'mould' is
used as a noun.

But 'mould' (as a noun) can aslo mean 'sculpture produced by
moulding'

'Mould' as verb can mean
to form by pouring (e.g., wax or hot metal) into a cast or mould
and
to form in clay, wax, etc.


Stephen Allen
The sculptures shown in this gallery are designed, created and
hand cast in a special blend of stone powders, metal powders
and resins. Each is hand finished and painted.
