About our Products
Most of our sculptures are made of this lava stone.
The clay minerals (mostly chlorides) give this stone the tell-tale greenish
colour. With a little luck there even are small pieces of different stone
types in the raw material. Sculptures made of crafted stone are frost
resistant, but should not get in contact with de-icing salt as this will
cause damage to the structure of the stone. Please make sure that the
sculpture doesn‘t stand in water during the frost period, but rather on
gravel or something similar.
This stone belongs to the same family as granite, which
makes it a lot denser and tougher than the lava stone. It takes more
strength and skill to work with river stone. Because of its density our artists
are able to include more details. River stone can also be painted with
antique finish. With this stone, too, please make sure that the sculpture
doesn‘t stand in water during the frost period, but rather on gravel or
A hand-made original is a model for a casting mould,
from which the artificial stone can later be casted. After it dried, the mould
is carefully removed, and the statue receives its final touch. Eventually the
antique finish is painted on by hand. The result is an authentic sculpture
for a fair price. Please make sure that the sculpture doesn‘t stand in water
during the frost period, but rather on gravel or something similar.
Fibre cement is a mixture of fibres and cement. Despite
this mixture and thin walls the material has a high durability, and weighs
far less compared to pressed stone or crafted stone. With time the finish
If you plan to use bamboo outdoors, we highly recommend
coating it in a thin oil-based protective layer. This will protect it of cracks in
the wood when it‘s dry, and especially of climatic changes. Rips won‘t harm
the stability of the bamboo stick. We recommend cleaning the bamboo
during a dry season before you coat it. Alternatively you can sand back the
bamboo and then apply the coating. Repeat this every 1-2 years. If you drill
a hole into your bamboo, any water that may seep in can be drained. Avoid
major changes in temperature, and slowly adjust bamboo products to the
room temperature if you decide to use it indoors.
We cannot give warranty on bamboo as it‘s a natural product. The
following points (not a final list) are excempt from complaint
1. Bamboo may crack due to changes in temperature. Anything from
fissures to tears is possible to occur.
2. Colours may vary. Any burn marks are results of the heat that was
used directly after harvest in order to straighten the bamboo.
3. Bamboo sticks may have curves. They are natural products and not
4. The bamboo‘s diameter varies. It‘s measured by the thicker bottom
part as it grows slightly thinner to the top. All measurements are
rough and made as best as possible.
