Looking after Bronze animal statues to buy? Bronze statues are perfect for a special gift occasion or if you want to infuse some art in to your home. Bronze is the most popular metal for cast sculptures due to its strength, lack of brittleness, and expanding/shrinking properties throughout the casting process. Bronze alloys also allow for very detailed sculpting and a vibrant and colorful color and finish. And then there’s durability: It’s been said that bronze sculpture will be the longest-lasting of all human creations. I find that humbling.
I went on a total fox jag a while back. I just love their forms and inquisitive natures. With these sculptures I’ve mostly explored foxes looking and behaving naturally, as well as engaging in a bit of my usual anthropomorphizing. (Man, I wish there was a shorter word for that!) This is Attention to De-tail, an elegant piece filled with great lines. My goal here was to create a lyrical design that celebrated the grace of foxes. This quiet moment allows me to explore the fox form in repose, instead of in action. There is no rushing here; we are allowing the fox to truly give attention to every detail. This piece exhibits all the hallmarks of my work, such as curves transitioning into planes, highlighted dimensional lines, complex and rich patinas, and a bit of complementary texture. Even though this fox is in repose, the graceful line from the tip of the tail to the nose is reminiscent of the movement of my dance sculptures. And as with another of my fox pieces, EnWrapture, I continue to explore the juxtaposition of texture with smooth surface. I love how the rock supports the fox and allows for a new interplay between two complementary patina styles. Read additional info at Fox bronze sculpture.
Trick for getting bronze art appraised: Have realistic expectations. Last, be realistic about your expectations. There are some bronze sculptures that are frequently replicated, and they can be found all over the place such as pieces by Remington, Rodin, and Renoir. If you’re looking at one of these pieces, the chances of it being worth anything substantial are slim to none. However, with less replicated pieces, they have the potential to be original casts or recasts, and the value for these can vary.
Bronze statues cleaning: The best cleaning solution to use for your cleaning your outdoor bronze sculpture is (drumroll please) … soap and water. That’s right: just use a tiny bit of dish soap in a clean bucket with a clean rag. Don’t use too much soap or else it may leave a residue. You’ll want to avoid any bleach-based products or scented options. Dip a clean rag into your soapy water and get to wiping. If your outdoor bronze sculpture has numerous tight spaces, use a soft toothbrush. This toothbrush can also be helpful for getting the hard-to-remove debris off such as bird poop.
I take great pride in creating art that is meaningful and stands the test of time. Whether it’s a gift to another or a gift to yourself, each piece evokes true emotion and appreciation for those who feel drawn to adopt one. You’ll see three lines of work on the site: My limited-edition bronzes are aimed at those who appreciate truly high-end fine art. My “Desk Buddies” collection make the energy of my work just a bit more accessible. And my experimental one-of-a-kinds; truly unique pieces that incorporate a variety of materials and concepts.
