sculptures

comic strips

Centipede creates unique sculptures in assignment. A sculpture can be cast in edition so that it can be presented as a business gift. Sculptures are cast in bronze or plastics and can be delivered on a pedestal.

The sculptures Centipede creates are mostly figurative in nature. There is a lot of attention for the correct anatomy in human or animal figures. In architectural pieces and scale models measurement drawings and photographs are used to make sure the proportions are right. Depending on the size a sculpture is modeled in wax or clay. Frequent @-mail contact with photographs takes place during the making process to ensure the desired end result.

The sculptures are cast in Xiamen. There Centipede also has personal contact with factories that manufacture pedestals in marble or granite and engrave text and logo's.

Centipede also makes sand sculptures, but they are on a separate page. Bronze sculptures and sculptures in other materials follow at the bottom of this page. The following chapters can therefore also be clicked:
