In historic Britain, on the grounds of Hever Castle, graceful arches crown a columned garden pavilion, once the setting for private affairs, now used for cultural events. From the days of Henry VIII to the present, the columns have stood, and today the arches remain, even as the generations have passed.
A small portion of this unique structure has been recreated in miniature, as a stage for figures, furniture or collectibles. It is suitable for home or office display, on a coffee table, end table, or desk.
The Arches project was also taught as a class in West Palm Beach, Florida. Students assembled prepared pieces as a kit and then received instruction in faux finishing exterior stonework. If you are interested in taking a class, please write to us with the desired instruction, and city or state.
Materials: birch plywood and solid pine; resin columns and capitals; faux limestone finish of acrylic paint.
The Arches stand 16.75" tall on a 14.5" square base. Sold.
The Arches prototype was featured in March 2007 in Dollhouse and Miniature Scene magazine, and in the June 2007 issue of American Miniaturist magazine.
