Laurens Nockels - Sculptor, artist and maker of things

My parents were both successful commercial artists and illustrators so I have always made art. Even before graduating in fine art sculpture, I started working as a freelance sculptor, set builder, props master and animation model maker within the film industry.

Since 1995 I have specialised in animation set building and prop making, as well as art direction and model making for stop frame animation feature films, music promos and commercials.

In 2013 I set up Pinewood Creative, and in-house props making & set buliding workshop at Pinewood Studios, and ran the deartment for three years.

In 2017 I established Mangostone Ltd. in Bristol with my business partner Tony Tarquini.

Mangostone is a collective of sculptors prop makers and set builders - we fabricate all manner of items for artists, Film & TV companies, animation, retail displays, museums & visitor atrtractions.

The skills I use today range from sculpting and designing, to quoting and project managing as well as marketing and gaining new business.

I keep my hand in with regular life drawing and sculpting to ensure I get my creative fix.
