Matt Buckley started off his sculpting career over 20 years ago having been afforded the opportunity to hone his craft by following in the footsteps of his step father, Robert Harrop. Licensed figurines that Matt has both sculpted personally and directed include the Beano and Dandy, Camberwick Green, Roald Dahl, Bagpuss, 2000 AD, The Magic Roundabout, Mr Benn and Gerry Andersons Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Stingray, with many pieces being continually produced to this date.
Each piece was originally sculpted in clay to allow Matt the greater freedom to create the dynamic and organic feeling of each individual piece. The finished clay pieces were then carefully hand cast using reconstituted stone to allow for reproduction of the detail and texture of the original sculpt.
The finishing touch is the skilful application of hand finishing and painting that brings the figure to life. Highly collectible as centre pieces and talking points for any room or garden.
