The café manager from Leeds can spend up to 30-40 hours on one piece of artwork, usually working on around three a month – showing the level of detail required.

Carefully sculpting the majority of each piece by hand Bunty also designs parts – including windows – to be generated in a 3D printer and has faithfully recreated around 10 locations so far, with 20 new projects underway. Most feature unique additions, usually highlighted by her clients – whether it’s the addition of a piece of custom music playing through a music box or a reproduction of a location close to their heart.

She said: “After I posted them I had loads of people getting in touch, asking me if I could make places that were special to people – ‘could you do our wedding venue, our old house, the coffee shop we met at. I think a lot of it has to do with people’s nostalgia for buildings during lockdown as well. I think that’s what has fuelled the fire because people missed these places and there’s so much emotional attachment to them. Every piece I have done has amazing memories attached to it.”
