Breaking the mould - Phillip Brewer Designs are Decidedly Different

Thanks for visiting my shop!

The pieces you see for sale are the culmination of a huge amount of effort, lots of experiments and dozens of mistakes! I’ve trialled everything hundreds of times, finding the right mix of dyes, working out how to remove air bubbles, getting the right consistency of plaster and finding the best way to remove pieces from the mould without breaking anything off!

The moulds I use are months in the making. I sculpt each design from clay, applying several layers of silicone and making husks capable of supporting the weight of each item. Orders are then cast using plaster of paris with a mix of dyes; I apply wax coatings and protective felt feet to all orders. I make each item to order with a lead time of five days to ensure that I can cast it, dry it and quality check it before posting.

I launched my shop in 2018 and I am proud to have made over 400 sales so far. It has been a massive journey for me and I was really nervous about opening up as it also meant opening up myself to for public scrutiny. However with many positive reviews from customers my business has grown and so has my confidence. I am now performing in the top 10% of shops.

I have made the decision to step away from full time work (I worked as a builder until recently) to focus on growing my Etsy business. I’m really excited to be able to have the time and space to start thinking about new designs and bring them to life in my “workshop” (aka garage). Massive thanks to my wife, Lara, for all she has done to encourage and support me in my journey.

Thank you for your interest in my work and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.

Frequently asked questions
Can you create custom designs?

The molds I use are months in the making and sculpted individually from clay, with applied several layers of silicone and made husks capable of supporting the weight of the items. Unfortunately the time commitment in bringing a product to life means that I cannot make custom designs, but please do keep an eye on my shop for new items as I have a number in the pipeline.

Custom and personalised orders

I have included small etchings like features, or stars onto the base of my products where customers have asked for this. If you would like this done, please contact me.
