The Monadnock building with its flared base and top and jutting out bay windows is one of the world’s most distinctive skyscrapers. It graces the Chicago skyline and is renowned for being at the forefront of innovation. It remains to this day the tallest commercial iron framed building with a load-bearing masonry exterior.

Chisel & Mouse have produced a sculpture of the north side facade, designed by Burnham & Root in 1891. Its striking design makes it one of the finest remaining examples of the Chicago School of Architecture.

Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

Sustainably Crafted

We all want the world to be a better place. We are trying to do our bit. We reuse, recycle and use less where we can. We search out sustainable local suppliers. We sponsor grassroots sports for the local youth, donating both money and time. We sponsor local environmental projects. We know we can do more but we're making a start!


We hand make all of our models. Chisel & Mouse is the combination of an artisan’s approach (the chisel) with modern innovation and transformative technologies (the mouse). By capturing life and its big ideas in miniature, the brand celebrates the beauty of our industrialised world.
