Enchanted introduces a totally new concept in collectible sculpture for the garden and home. We have created two beautiful ranges of sculptures which evoke feelings of magic and myth, drawing as they do on childhood memories, mythology and legend and a touch of celtic romanticism. The figures have a quintessentially faerie aura, the like of which has never before been available.
The first of our ranges is our Limited Edition Bronze Faeries available in Cold Cast Bronze, uniquely hand-finished and complete with a magic faerie coin and scroll signed by the artists. Our second range is our wonderful Woodland Faeries, an exquisite collection of faerie figurines associated with woodland trees. Our third range are our new Classic Collection, which take the best of Enchanted and present it to you at a new affordable price. Our Woodland and Classic faeries have the same attention to sculpting detail for which Enchanted is widely renowned. They are resin figurines finsihed with a Bronze Resin coat, which allows to allow us to offer these pieces at a price to suit everyones budget. The Woodland Faeries and Classic Collection are not limited edition, but are still highly collectible. For a description of the difference between Cold Cast Bronze, Lost Wax Bronze and Bronze Resin please see our Explanation of Bronze Types.
This is art with a difference, it is there to be discovered, it is there to create an air of wonder, magic and beauty. Each Limited Edition, Classic and Woodland Faerie comes with its own detachable base for display in the conservatory or house. Additionally most faeries are provided, where suited, with a special rod for display in the garden, which when pressed into the ground amongst the plants allows the figures to appear as if discovered in their natural environment, playing, flying or just standing in amazement as we humans stroll past.
Each Enchanted character is lovingly crafted from start to finish. Each figure is unique and you will marvel at how their finish responds to different lighting conditions. The wings are totally original. We feel that only now can customers believe that fairies do indeed have gossamer wings.
Each Limited Edition statue and bronze base is inscribed with an edition number and signed by the artists Michael Steel & Mark Turner. Upon receiving your statue you will find a magical Spell Scroll (certificate of ownership) and an Enchanted bronze talisman individually inscribed with your edition number.
Each Woodland Faerie figure comes with its own display base, with name plate and a poem scroll, plus a specially designed faerie coin and pouch, unique to each faerie, for you to collect.
Prepare to be Enchanted and see the magic unfold. Now, when you say to your children "we have faeries at the bottom of the garden" you really will!
Based on a true life experience Mark has long dreamt of interpreting and creating realistic characters from the realm of Fay. His work in the field of art and design spans some 25 years, having worked at Shepperton Film Studios in the early eighties. Since then he has undertaken commissions, both domestic and commercial, transforming rooms with paintings and 3-D murals, stimulating the imagination of children and adults alike. Mark has made three appearances on British terrestrial TV and been featured in a number of topical magazines. Some of Mark's other work can be seen at the Enchanted Wood.
Michael has worked at Shepperton Studios, involved in many films, the latest to be released being Gladiator. He was sculpting before he could walk, well almost, and accepted his first commission at the age of sixteen. Prior to meeting Mark and setting up the Enchanted Studio, Michael had been involved in commercial sculpting and design for fifteen years. Medieval architecture, Victorian and Pre-Raphaelite art has had a great influence on his sculpting and together with Mark their combined talents have found an avenue for expressing that which they truly believe the Realm of Enchanted.
