Welcome to Peakdale Sculptures
Established by Barry Snelson in 2002. Perveyors of quality figurines and sculptures. Each and every piece is handmade and painted in England. Created by professional craftsmen and women, collectively making unique pieces of art work for collectors worldwide.
At Peakdale, it is our belief that each and every piece is made to the highest standard possible. Before any sculpture leaves the premises every finished item is double checked to maintain the quality synonymous with Peakdale.
Each sculpture goes through a meticulous process of development. Starting with the making of the original model then mould making, casting, and the ever and most important, painting. Each painted sculpture requires numerous applications of paint. Layer upon layer, building up tonal changes and depth. In some cases many hours are taken to complete one actual piece. It's this process of care and attention to detail that makes a Peakdale sculpture unique.
Please take some time to have a look around the Peakdale website and if you have any questions please email.
