About Natureshaper

Sales 25
On Etsy since 2014

Dioramas, Models, Earthy Things, Architecture, Rusty Things.

Model building has fascinated me since youth. I have a portfolio of "table display" and wall mountable items of both natural and architectural themes. (Coastal ModelWorks). Recently I have begun making "Earth Sconces" under the name NatureShaper. These are detailed close-ups of nature; a sort of pulling a part of the earth away, and looking closely. I've experimented with rust and Masonite, producing what I call, "Rusty Fossils", as I think they have a fossil-like appearance. More to come!

    I make dioramas and models, mainly with themes related to nature or architecture. However, I have also dabbled in stony hearts, dollhouse scale horse barns, and clay miniatures. I live on the southern Oregon coast, and work at home.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Certain parts are fragile. Handle with care. To remove dust, item can be turned upside down (with help) and lightly blow using computer-type compressed air cannister.

Do you accept requests for custom work?

Yes, as long as it's similar to my usual items, models, dioramas, miniatures, yes, please get in contact! Thank you.

Will this survive shipping?

Yes. Models are packaged in deep quantities of shredded kraft paper. This seems to work well. In some cases, boxes are reinforced with wood along the edges. During unpacking, it is important to carefully "tease out" the strips of kraft paper that may become entangled with model details.
