For Jop van Driel every sculpture starts in wood. Some sculptures are also cast in bronze, but always in a limited edition. Each edition is described at the notary and has a certificate. This gives collectors the guarantee that no more sculptures will be cast than the specified number.
Wooden sculptures are always one of a kind. A sculpture is created by processing a piece of wood. Each is a unique design, either tailored to the wishes and story of the client or made from inspiration.
