About

All the way from 4 years old to 500 sales and counting on Etsy! :)

Hi,
My name is Martin Pool, I'm a 29 year old self taught sculptor from the UK. I first started sculpting when I was a wee lad at the age of 4, my parents bought me my first packet of plasticine and I never looked back. There was barely a day went by when I wouldn’t be making things out of my modelling clay, I loved it and it came very naturally to me. Nobody ever pushed me in to sculpting and nobody pushed me to keep going with it, I've just always felt a natural urge inside me to sculpt and to continually improve and raise my standards. As silly as it might sound, even though I'm only 29 I've actually been sculpting for around 21 years +, this is taking in to account a few years when I didn't do anything with my sculpting, but I could never stop coming back to it.

I got my first professional sculpting job when I was only 17 after doing work experience at Aardman Animations (the creators of Wallace and Gromit etc) with no sculpting qualifications or degrees and in a world were so much importance is placed on needing qualifications I'm very proud to be self taught and to have achieved success based on my natural talent alone. I worked at Aardman Animations on and off for a few years, I worked on Creature Comforts series 2 UK, and Creature Comforts USA. After that I tried a few business ventures of my own, and again I've come back to my sculpting. I never feel more comfortable and happy within my self unless I'm being creative and it's a fantastic feeling to be able to create sculptures that people from all over the world will treasure for a long time to come.

I hope this has been of interest and I hope you enjoy viewing and purchasing my sculptures, thanks for stopping by!!!

Shipping
Once you have purchased your sculpture(s) it/they will be dispatched the next working day after receiving payment. I only use guaranteed services to make sure you receive your sculpture and to make sure it arrives as quickly as possible. Orders from outside the UK are dispatched using UPS or Royal Mail Airsure and normally reach their destination in 3-5 working days, UK orders are dispatched using UK Mail or Parcel Force 24 hour service. All customers will receive order confirmation e-mails and you will also receive a dispatch confirmation e-mail with a tracking number so you can track your sculpture every step of the way for your piece of mind, all packages will need to be signed for so please make sure someone will be at your address to receive your sculpture. Pre-order items will take longer due to the time it will take for production of your sculpture.

NOTE FOR CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE THE UK: Orders from outside the UK are dispatched with UK Mail and a telephone number is required by UKMail for me to complete your postage label. If you can please send me a message with your phone number after you place your order that would be great and then there won't be any delay in dispatching your order. A phone number is not required from UK customers.

NOTE FOR UK CUSTOMERS: The postage price displayed for the UK is for Mainland UK only, if you are in an area of the UK where postage costs are higher I may contact you with the actual postage price and the extra cost will need to be paid before your order is dispatched.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do my best to show the clearest pictures possible on my listings to give you an exact view of what you are purchasing, I also try to measure my sculptures as accurately as possible. With that in mind please look at the pictures, listing and measurements carefully to make sure the sculpture you are purchasing is the sculpture you want. However I will accept returns, if you are returning your sculpture for a refund, you must notify me of this within 7 days of receiving the item, the cost of return shipping must be covered by you, you will receive a full refund minus what you paid for shipping when I have received the sculpture in an undamaged state. You must pack the sculpture exactly as it was packed for delivery to you to ensure there is no damage in transit. In the unlikely event you receive a broken item(s) you must contact me within two days of receiving your sculpture, with pictures of the broken item and I will rectify the situation swiftly with a replacement or refund.
Additional policies and FAQs
Pre-order Items.
When you see (This is a Pre-order item) on a listing, this means the sculpture has been SOLD, however you can still place a pre-order for the sculpture and I will sculpt another one for you very similar to the one you see in the pictures. As the sculptures I create are one of a kind, the sculpture you receive won't be 100% identical to the one in the pictures, but to the naked eye it will look pretty much the same, after all that is the beauty of original works of art that there isn't another exactly like it anywhere else. I will e-mail you pictures of the finished piece for your approval before shipping it to you. Please contact me for an estimated time for production as this will vary due to many factors, work load etc.

Customer Comments From Outside Etsy.
Below are a few comments from some of my previous customers:

What a fantastic scupture-a one off for a great price-unique piece from a talent.

Absolute Masterpiece Art from a Grand Master artist.

Hello Martin,
Only mere moments ago the Gorilla arrived. My hands were literally trembling as I unpacked it. And then there it was - in all it's splendor and beauty and even more incredible than I could ever have imagined. You are truly an artist Extraordinaire!!! Not a chip anywhere and safely sitting on my coffee table until I can return home from work and then into a special made glass case where it will be one of the crowning icons of my 50+ year collection of animal art and collectibles. I really can't thank you enough, but I wanted you to rest easy that it arrived safely before I left for work. JIM
