The artists behind this distinctive concept are Robert and Gavin Paisley, who wanted to get creative after working in a software company for 10 years. Robert says, “We were drawn to 3D printers and wanted to use these in our production. So we combined all three. We chose buildings we loved, used 3D printers to prototype our designs, and used traditional model making techniques to make the finished models.”
The pieces can take weeks to create, from the concept to the “master” mold, then more than an hour to produce the finished piece. Made of strong plaster which has a reassuring weight and a smooth, cool finish, the eye-catching models make fabulous bookends and stylish ornaments. They are the perfect gift for those who appreciate art, design and beautiful things.
“Architecture resonates with people, architecture is art,” Robert says. “Chisel & Mouse enables you to enjoy the buildings you love from the comfort of your living room.”
