The company started life to design and manufacture limited edition foundry bronze sculptures and collectibles. The founder, Richard Cooper, had previously owned Country Artists Ltd, of Stratford upon Avon. A company he had also founded. This was a successful company designing and manufacturing animals, birds and a wide collection of wildlife subjects from around the world. All the sculptures were made in resin and hand painted in sizes from miniature to life size.
When the company was sold in 2004 Richard was not ready to retire and decided to start a new venture in the same arena but in bronze rather than resin as the base material.
