To celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday, Legoland set up a street party in front of their own Mall in front of their recreation of Buckingham Palace.

And what would a street party be without bunting!

We made around 50 feet of Union Jack bunting that was draped down ‘The Mall’ and around the ‘Victoria Fountain’ in front of ‘Buckingham Palace’.

What do gnomes and fire buckets have in common? Whisky of course!
Ok, so for those that are still confused, this commission was part of a limited edition set of artworks created by Sir Peter Blake and Macallan Whisky to celebrate the godfather of pop art’s 80th birthday.

The artwork was a box that displayed miniature bottles of whisky with items and pictures, which take you through the past 8 decades of The Macallan.

Our part in the project was to make around 150 gnomes and fire buckets.
As amusing as 150 gnomes fishing on a tray looks, it was one of the least amusing commissions we’ve ever done. Each one of the 150 gnomes were cast and painted and adorned with a little wooden fishing rod along with the fishing line… I still have nightmares of gnome armies invading my home! The fire buckets had to be painted and filled with water (resin), an easier job but again, a tad repetitive!

After many hours work and a lot of cramp in painting hand, it was pretty satisfying to see the final results.

Never again.

Over the years we’ve had quite a few requests for things we currently make, but in a different scale. This commission was for a digital marketing company who approached us to make a larger version of our 1/12th scale deckchairs. This was for their client who wanted them for beach themed hard drive display. I know what you are thinking and we didn’t understand either. Usually technology plus sand is a disaster waiting to happen! Despite our confusion, I think the result looked quite effective and they were certainly a nice job to work on.
