Dwarven Forge and MasterMaze are the brainchild of Stefan Pokorny. Stefan is the founder, creator and one of the primary sculptors of the entire MasterMaze line. He is a fine artist by trade who has studied extensively in the US and abroad. He holds a master's degree in painting from the University of Hartford and is currently teaching classes at the prestigious Lyme Academy of Fine Art in figure drawing. His paintings and sculptures can be seen at the First Street Gallery in New York City. All MasterMaze products are cast in durable poly-resin and come fully hand-painted by skilled artisans to Stefan's exact specifications. The quality, durability and detail can only really be appreciated by holding the product in your own hand. From the felt on the bottom of each piece (to protect your tabletop) to the custom-cut styrofoam storage container, Dwarven Forge guarantees satisfaction.
