Specializing in handmade pirate art, props, and environments.
Are you developing or refurbishing a pirate themed attraction?
I am passionate about, and dedicated to, the aesthetic of the golden age of piracy. I have produced props for theatrical productions, luxury swimming pools, theme and amusement parks, tourist attractions, retail displays, and more.
For the cost of a common, precast prop I can provide a unique and highly detailed creation tailored to your needs. I can even incorporate your branding into the work by way of color schemes, product placements, logos, etc.
Because each piece is created specifically for you I can distribute the budget properly across figures and orders.
Your item will endure wherever it is located. I generally use boater’s resin and fiberglass matting to weatherproof and strengthen my figures—that’s the same stuff they use to build the hulls of boats, cars, and even body armor.
Rest assured your prop or figure will function as good as it looks. And of course I backup my work. Items that are to be kept indoors may need less fortification and that will usually bring the cost down as a result.
Your purchase as an investment in a relationship. I guarantee that my work will function as detailed in our agreement or it will be replaced or repaired.
I partner with you from the start to create unique, eye-popping props designed to draw customers in and encourage repeat business. Each prop is custom crafted to meet your design specifications.
I also offer discounts on future refurbishments or replacements of your purchase.
No two props are alike. Every piece is handmade per order and will be the most unique pirate themed prop available. I maintain a large stock of every article of clothing and accessory a pirate can wear.

Additional policies and FAQs
The skeletal figures are flaccid by default, meaning they are poseable but they can not hold a pose.
Keep in mind I am flexible. If, for example, you want one hand poseable and not both I will charge you half the fee since I am only making one hand poseable.
Major joints are moveable (neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, and knees.)
Fingers are NOT poseable.
Figure does NOT hold a pose.
Will need to be propped up or rested on something to stay in place.
Head looks left and right but not up and down.
Rigid pose, a sculpture
Nothing can move or is poseable.
The load bearing part of the figure (feet and legs if standing or bottom if seated, etc.) is mounted to a base to hold it upright.
All joints are locked in place.
May be partially disassembled to cut shipping costs depending on pose.
Includes a basic, simple, functional base painted black
Mounted to base
Knees and waist will be rigid to keep the figure upright.
Includes a basic, simple, functional base painted black
Fingers on Both Hands
Generally I pose the hand around an object like a weapon, prop, or pose it in a rigid natural position. Poseable fingers joints require a lot of work. I drill out and cement each finger bone to a thin armature wire and each finger bone is sanded and stained.
Poseable fingers are NOT meant to be posed repeatedly or the wires break. I will make repairs to hands for the cost of shipping (as I will for most everything else) and am looking for an answer to this problem.
Generally used on Flaccid or poseable figures to hold them upright.
The figure will have a mounting for a stand at the base of the spine.
Mounting will be a right angle bracket so you can screw it to something.
Stand NOT included.
A deluxe base is a little larger than a regular base and can be made to look like a part of the deck, covered in sand, or gold pieces.
