Decorative plaster work of all shapes and sizes – Lincolns Inn bespoke plaque commission.

Although most of the decorative plaster work we undertake is on a large scale in stately homes and halls, sometimes in a more modest domestic setting, we also get asked to produce bespoke, much smaller and unique pieces of work. This particular project was commissioned by Lincolns Inn, London - one of the worlds most prestigious professional bodies of judges and lawyers. We were provided with a 3 or 4 photos and images to base a commemorative plaque design around. Our craftsman Ben, who is also our in-house sculptor and modeler then set about designing the new plaque, by creating a mould for the main part of the plaque. Then, based on a basic line drawing of  Madonna and child, he hand sculpted and replicated this detailed image out of clay. It was  re-cast out of resin and applied to the plaque which is now ready for painting and finishing.

Creating a one-off piece like this is a time consuming process as everything is hand made and this can take days of our craftsman's time, but this is a pure bespoke piece. Of course this is reflected in the price we have to charge for such projects but what we produce will be around for years to come, almost like a work of art.
