We are Halcyon Casts. Elle & Maksim. This is our family. It's a team effort here, even our twin boys like tinkering with casting materials. Little apprentices in the making perhaps? Time will tell!
We both became totally obsessed with casting when our boys were babies. Our twin boys were born early & were incredibly teeny tiny. Their little hands were the first solid bronze casts we ever made.
From newborn to toddler to starting school & beyond. It all goes so quickly! It feels very special to be able to pause a moment in time. To treasure a moment. Making these sculptures is an absolute joy from the first meeting of those being cast, to making & finishing the casts.
This is me. I have worked as a Nursery Nurse & Nanny before becoming a Mum & casting artist. Creativity has always been a passion of mine. I will be the one answering your emails & messages. I will meet you at your casting session, welcome you into our home & make you a cuppa! I will explain the casting process to you, massage little feet & hands then I will make the moulds for casting. Feel free to talk babies, motherhood, fatherhood, worries & funny stories to me! I want you & your little ones to enjoy the casting experience as well as enjoy the finished keepsake.
This is my husband. He is an Engineer. The busy man behind the scenes. The true perfectionist. The one with the beady eye for detail & incredible talent for making our bronze cast sculptures. Also a total hero in the eyes of our boys. In fact their favourite place to be is tinkering in Daddy's workshop with all those wondrous materials & tools
