Welcome to my website. My name is Ken Connolly, please browse through my web site and see just some of the models I have created, I am constantly working on new ideas. Let me know you have visited and leave me any comments in the guestbook.
I am considered the only Matchstick Craftsman in the UK, my models have been exibited in Europe, China and America, and every September I display at the Woodfest, Hatfield Forest.
Please come and see my intricate and and unique art, you will truly be amazed at the miniature models I have created from a simple box of matches.
Matchstick sculptures require a high level of skill patience and imagination.
Using a keen eye for detail and a very steady hand I have developed over many hours the ability to model matchsticks in a unique and intriguing fashion.
My artwork has expanded over the years and although most of the sculptures are created from a single match others involve many different themes from historical figures through to a wide range of animals birds and insects.
The largest to date has taken only thirty three matches and is a Spanish galleon which I built, hand painted and placed in a glass bottle.
Please enjoy browsing some examples of my work in the gallery. I would appreciate your feedback and suggestions via the guest book and you can enquire about orders or commissioned pieces using the enquiry form.
