Griffin Studios : About Us

 

Peter and Denise have been professional sculptors since 1987.

After graduating in Sculpture from Camberwell School of Art in London they undertook three years post graduate study in India followed by a period of nine years during which they worked on a series of sculpture commissions in the USA, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, India & Nepal.

In 2000 they moved back to the UK and established Griffin Studios in Dorset where they continue to work by commission.

In 1997 The Maitreya Project commissioned Denise and Peter to build the prototype for a 500ft /152m high bronze statue of Buddha Maitreya which will soon begin construction in India. At a height equivalent to that of a 50-storey building, the Maitreya Statue will be the tallest sculpture in the world. A 150ft high statue is also now being built in India.

Griffin Studios recently completed a major commission for P&O Cruises. This involved creating 10 artworks for an Indian themed area on P&O’s new cruise ship The Azura.

Other recent commissions include; three sculptures for a development project in San Francisco, a 5m high sculpture in Washington State, USA, a 3.5m high public sculpture in the UK, 12 stone carvings for a Buddhist temple in London.

Much of our current work involves product design, (most of which is subject to client confidentiality agreements) and we have developed products/artworks for many companies within the interiors, leisure, giftware, sign-making and souvenirs markets, as well as several museums. We have also been developing a range of products that will be licensed to manufacturers, including a range of giftware and a portfolio of 3D relief tiles which will be aimed at the high end interiors market – restaurants and hotels, as well as private clients.

A note on client confidentiality; Most of the work we do for other clients is extremely confidential. We take this very seriously and never divulge information when requested. We are more than happy to sign a NDA
