|The Compleat Sculptor, Inc. is one of the largest sculpture suppliers in the world. Over the years TCS has expanded into so many more industries than ever imagined. Many of the creative people are employed in creative industries including, set design, toy prototyping, movie special effects, museum displays, restoration and renovation, interior design, tv props and even the military. Accompanying our increasing customer base is our increased stock and acquisition of new and interesting products. We will continue to provide you with the best possible product selection and service. And it all began in 1995 with the following story.|
|For years, my mother, who is a sculptor, had been complaining that she had no place to get good quality stone, no place that offered a complete line of tools and supplies, no place that understood the needs of sculptors. Because I wanted to make my mother happy, I have created that place --- The Compleat Sculptor.Having grown up in close contact with many artists, I have come to understand how difficult and demanding the creative process can be. I also know how frustrating it is to have that process needlessly complicated by a lack of access to the proper tools or materials, and by having to spend endless amounts of time trying to arrange all of the details that go into a finished sculpture.That is why I have created The Compleat Sculptor --- to supply you with as complete a line of services as possible and to assist you in the creating of your sculpture. TCS not only furnishes you with the highest quality sculpture media (stone, clay, wax, etc...) and the highest quality tools, but we also offer a complete line of support services. For stone sculptors, we offer finishing and polishing; for clay sculptors, firing; for bronze casters, foundry services through affiliated foundries. Once your sculpture is completed, we will mount it to your specifications, build you a pedestal or base (either custom or stock), photograph your piece if you desire, and finally ship it anywhere in the world. And, because my mother insists, all of our supplies and services are tested and approved by our Sculptor Advisory Board. For the same reason, our customer service department is manned by people who are not only knowledgeable about our products and services, but who also have personal experience as sculptors.
This is why we feel that we can truly say: "You supply the talent... We'll supply the rest."
