Bronze sculpture
Romantic sitting figurines
Size: 4.5" figures
THE TWO OF US (my favorite ;-)
These small bronze figurines are loose and not attached, they can be moved around, played with or seated wherever you like. They are modular to create one of a kind assemblies of my little people families. "The two of us" is also the basic "parents " pair to start a family. It could be an ideal wedding gift, children can be added later as the family grows.

For custom orders:
Please send a quick note if you want to place a custom order. Let me know if you want add a little girl or boy, I have 3 girls and 3 boys to choose from (Small ' toddler size", medium, large) Once we decide on the number of children the price varies. I will create a separate listing for you.

The little bronze people can be placed nicely and neat on the shelf, mantle, windowsill, or on a found rock too.

Description of creation and casting process for my larger work.

Creating an original bronze sculpture is quite involved and labor intensive. I start out modeling the original either in clay or another sculpting material from wax to wood. I sculpt with the human emotion and connectedness in mind. All of my little couples and families should convey that bond. Upon completion a silicone rubber mold is created from the original. Then liquid hot wax is poured into to mold. When it's hardened if can easily be released. The unfinished wax copies are carefully reworked with sculpting tools. Once the waxes are to my satisfaction, I send them to the foundry. They attach the spruces, dip them into a ceramic mixture until a shell of about an inch has built up. Then they are adding the waxes in their shell to the kiln. The wax is molten out and the negative is retained in the ceramic shell mold. Thereafter the liquid bronze ( it's super hot) is poured into this second mold. After a cooling time the shell is destroyed.
The cleanup takes a while and the shell is destroyed with power tools and the rough bronze is sandblasted. The spruces are roughly cut with a plasma cutter. Then I receive the raw bronze back for finishing. Some welding might be necessary, metal cutting and chasing and sanding. After the raw bronze is once more sandblasted and carefully cleaned the patina is applied either with heat or cold. The application takes a while to oxidize. Sometimes it takes a few days to get the desired result. Then parts are highlighted by polishing and a protective coating is sprayed on as a last finishing stage.
