About

Some years ago I retired and with all this free time I now had, I promised to finish my daughter's doll house which I had started when she was 3. I learnt a great deal from building that house and one of the things was that many items I needed were simply not available to buy.

However, it's been very successful in the UK and I have had great pleasure making some new models for metal casting. The dolls house business is not as booming as it was years ago, but people are buying my miniature metalwork for many different projects these days; collage, mixed media art, scrapbooking, and steampunk.

My metalwork can be painted in enamel, spray paint, metal paint, and even acrylic.
I'm very proud to say there is nothing else on the market like it.

I hope you will enjoy my miniature metalwork, if you have any questions about it's use, please contact me.

With very best wishes, Albert
