PROP MAKER | MODEL MAKER/BUILDER | SCULPTING

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

I have a background in industral/production & graphic design and use different techiques like sculpting, fabrication, scratch building, electronics, machine work, painting and weathering. Materials I use is often styrofoam, plastics, wood and clay but also electronics and metals.  Allmost everything you see on this page is made in my little shop at Kungsholmen in Stockholm.

FIXING BROKEN THINGS

I also do restoration, reparing, mending and modifications. Allmost anything such as vases, statues and furniture to paintings, books and costumes. This is an example I did for Svedish Television renting service Magasin 4, a completely broken Nyckelharpa (keyed fiddle).
