We were invited a number of years ago to
carry out work for one of Britain's foremost sculptors.
It soon became apparent that the skills and
sympathetic approach offered by our craftsmen were ideally suited to
this type of work. We have since been able to apply our resources to a
number of significant projects.
Our innovative engineers are experienced in
all facets of engineering and are skilled in working with sculptors
during the realisation stage of their work, being fully conversant with
CAD software and other techniques.
We are happy to discuss projects at the
budget stage and offer practical advice regarding the best methods of
manufacture. We welcome the involvement of sculptors during the
realisation stage. Do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your future

Benson-Sedgwick has a vast experience in all
aspects of realising an art-based project, having worked with numerous
artists on a wide variety of projects in all manner of roles. We are
incredibly flexible being able to adapt our involvement to suit your
resources and budget.
We believe that the essential element in
creating a successful project (aesthetically and financially) is to
clearly and accurately determine the scope of responsibilities. It is
too easy for all parties to assume that elements are being handled by
others, especially when the structure of a project becomes complicated
by numerous parties. Client / artist is simple but client may be a group
of people. Then there are clients representative, clients contractor,
agent/art consultant/gallery, artist and artists fabricator. Throw into
the mix various sub-contractors, local authorities; artists contractors
and the opportunity for large items to be missed is huge.
We are able to liase between all parties
involved and ensure that the process from initial idea to finished
sculpture is as smooth as possible. If you have an idea but don't how to
get it started why not contact us now and see if you can make your idea
