Welcome to the World of Fantasy, Mystery and Magic of
and the world of Rik Pierce!!!
Rik Pierce emerged as a premiere miniature artisan in 1999 when he displayed his castle "East of the Moon".
Since that time he has rapidly become the leading castle and fantasy structure creator of our time. Please take the time to look at his castles, interiors and finally Hogwarts, a commissioned castle that debuted in April of 2003.
Rik's castles and structures are certainly one of a kind pieces that deserve special attention. To view the famous fantasy creations by Rik, please click here or East of the Moon above!
A little history.....
Although Rik’s appearance in the world of miniatures has been relatively recent, he has always shown an interest and in art which has blended with every aspect of his life. Rik worked many years as a cartographer for the city of Los Angeles. He then decided it was time to follow his passion for architecture and design and remodel older homes. As he did this it allowed him to use many of his design, texture and graphic skills. And from there it was just a small leap into the world of miniature architectural design! And that leap was “East of the Moon” in 1999. And the rest is Creative Paperclay© history!
Creative Paperclay©…would that be paper mache? A special kind of baking clay, a home crafted clay? Nope. Creative Paperclay© comes in blocks of beige pliable clay. It is the product from which Rik Pierce crafts stones, bricks, walls, all masonry, rocks, cobblestone streets and on. In fact, Creative Paperclay© has a website at www.creativepaperclay.com where one can learn about the product. But don't be deceived! It might sound easy, but not so. Creative PaperClay© takes practice, design skill and the ability to envision a result. If that sounds like it requires an artist's touch, it is because it does! So with this brief history of Rik's appearance in the miniature world and the use of Creative PaperClay©, please visit his Fantasy Creations, Interiors and Hogwarts!
