Simon Pearson
MD, Jesmonite Ltd

I have known and worked with Al Maddocks for over ten years, and in that time we have collaborated on many projects in my capacity as manufacturer of Jesmonite, and in his as a keen customer looking for a safe alternative to Polyester resins.

Over the years we have enjoyed many challenging technical collaborations involving the whole spectrum of casting and mould making problems. In that time Alex has consistently impressed me with his knowledge of mould making, and in my view he is one the very best mould makers in the UK.

 I have known Al Maddocks for many years and in that time been very impressed by his approach to complex and demanding   projects that have often required much lateral thinking to find ingenious solutions.  He has also fully embraced the constant developments in material and process inherent in this field.

I would not hesitate to consult or collaborate with Al on highly complex projects destined for the fine art gallery or museums around the world.

Production Manager at The Art Studio

We have worked with Al over the years to produce many of our moulds and casts that now feature in Buddhist Shrines around the world. Al is a very skilled and knowledgeable craftsman unfazed by some of our obscure and challenging requests.

He has both a deep and broad understanding of casting techniques and materials enabling him to successfully replicate even the most intricate of objects.  We look forward to continuing our working relationship with Al on joint collaborations in the future.
