About me

Steven

Owner/Manager and Ornamental Landform Model Maker

I live on edge of North Pennines near Penrith in Cumbria and I am director of my own cottage industry type craft business and I make ornamental landform realistic models by sculpting clay, moulding them, casting and hand painting them. The models are currently of Fells/Mountains of Cumbrias Lake District but more from other mountain areas to follow soon. They are at maximum the size of a small to medium size book.  I make them using my own interpretation and I am self taught in sculpting, moulding, casting & painting them.

I am a Geologist academically and have a specialism & great interest in rocks, landforms and this includes volcanoes & volcanic rocks.
I am very familiar with Cumbrias Lake District, having explored it extensively and have known the Lakes since I was very little, when I lived in Durham. Cumbrias Lake District has always been a special area to me. I have also explored & climbed, that includes some rock climbs of most of Scotlands and Wales mountains. Further afield I have climbed 3 of the Swiss Alps highest 4000 metre peaks, several peaks in Norway, Corsica, Italys Dolomites & several Italian volcanoes. In Iceland I have explored & climbed 15 of the main volcanoes including active ones & the highest and experienced the lava eruption of Icelands Eyjafjallajökull Volcano in 2010.
All this has given me the experience and inspiration to make the ornamental models.
