Coarse





Designed and sculpted by 2 German artists these figures are made using traditional sculpting methods. Mark Landwehr and Sven Waschk began working together in 2003 producing a range of figures from small to large in size. The original sculpts get turned into vinyl toys which are made from resin and fibreglass.

In an interview with ArtBox magazine Landwehr says...

"My software is wax, silicone resin and fibreglass and my hardware includes a large range of sculpting tools, airbrushees, a micro motor - like the one dentists use - and a band saw. Oh yeah! Lots of sandpaper too. Honestly the figures are entirely handcrafted, even though it might look like they aren't. That's why I initially stated sculpting. I wanted to create things with my own hands."
