Hi Michelle, I just want to share with you how happy and emotional I am after bringing my casting home, and give a brief summary of how much it means to me.
I unexpectedly lost my husband Richard on the 16th December whilst he was taking a nap. I desperately wanted a keepsake of us holding hands as he was taken from myself and our four daughters without any warning. As it was nearly Christmas I’d lost hope of this been a possibility until Hayley from the funeral directors found you. You went above and beyond to make my wish possible and even drove from your home in the snow to make the casting. You were so compassionate and caring and you made the morning very enjoyable and we all had a few laughs along the way if you remember.
Words cannot explain how much my casting means to us, it’s perfect and that’s thanks to you. It is something we can cherish as you also went above and beyond to place some of Richards ashes in our wrist on the finished hands.
We wish you every success for the future and send lots of love to a loving, compassionate and considerate lady who does make wishes come true xxxx

Thank you so much Michelle for coming and doing a home visit today. It really did make things so much easier than trying to get out to an appointment with a newborn! You really did bring your studio to us. There’s so many choices, but you helped us and we really can’t wait to see the results. You were great with archie and managed to work quickly without any mess. Thank You x

I visited the studio today with my sister and nephew to get casts of his hand and feet for a present and had a great initial experience. Michelle is professional whilst remaining friendly and my nephew loved her! Amazingly she actually managed to stop him wriggling for long enough to get both a hand and foot cast done! The samples on the wall were beautiful and my sister was impressed by how much involvement and input she had in the whole process. Michelle gives guidance on colours and styles without being pushy. Neither of us can wait to see the end result!
Rachel Huteson and Family – bespoke Frame for twins -18/07/17 We are over the moon with our casting, it will be treasured for years to come. Michelle went above and beyond to provide the best service every step of the way – she treated our girls with such kindness and care, helped and guided us to make all the decisions to get a piece we were really happy with and kept us in the loop as she crafted their little hands and feet. If you are thinking of having a cast done, I wouldnt hesitate in recommending Michelle
Adam Mroczkowski – hand clasp statue – 17/06/17 If any of you ever thought about an unusual, unique, different but beautiful gift for your loved ones than I highly recommend Michelle’s studio. She is the most friendly person I’ve ever met. She explained everything to me due our visit yesterday to take the cast of my folk’s hands for theirs 50th anniversary. Not even mentioning the great pricing and the fact that Michelle’s casting studio is the ONLY ONE available in Sheffield!!!

If you are searching for a personalised, elegant piece of Art that will last a life time then look no further. Michelle’s love for her craft shines through the work that she produces. The attention to detail and overall experience while Michelle worked with us was truly phenomenal. From start to finish we felt thoroughly involved ( which was fantastic for my two children… and myself). Michelle couldn’t give more than she did and the finished piece – WOW!
Michelle, thank you so much. We couldn’t be happier with what we now have as a centre piece in our living room. Everyone comments on its beauty but most of all, for us, you allowed us to capture a moment in time that holds dear to our hearts… again,
Thank you! Paul, Lily and Lucas.

Taking the prints:
The casting is a simple process, and involves gently immersing each hand or foot for about 10 seconds in a lukewarm syrupy material the consistency of thick custard, which sets in 10 – 15 seconds to a rubbery mould from which the hand or foot is easily removed.
We use high quality hypoallergenic moulding powder that gives a fine cast and excellent result. The impressions are taken by pressing the hand or foot into soft clay, from which a plaster tile is created and then framed.
The casting appointment will take 20 – 30 minutes; this includes time to take the casts and to choose your frame and finish.
The frames are handmade to order for each child; the finished framed piece is ready to collect in 4 weeks.
