Lying Down Hare Bronze Sculpture
Our collection of bronze animal sculptures features animals native to the UK wildlife environment. A proud stag staring in the foreground, a glorious pheasant darting along, a hare catching a break lying down and a pair of hares playing fisticuffs !
Our statues are made with a long lost technique for creating molds from wax. Molten metal is carefully poured into the mold, and this process, after time, begins to melt the wax away leaving a beautiful, artisanal design. This method for building sculptures gives an artist the ability to add more detail to the piece. This process is a specialist technique that doesn’t work with all metals, which is why bronze sculptures often have more detail than ones made out of steel, for example.
This highly skilled technique is called the long lost wax method, which comes from the French ‘cire perdue’. This process dates back to the Chalcolithic period, which as we all know was between 4500 - 3500 BC!
Anything made from bronze develops what’s called a ‘patina’ over a period of time. A patina is a green or brown layer or tarnish, which occurs due to oxidation. This colouring adds a distinctive personality and character to your sculpture.
