Throughout the centuries, bronze has been the prime medium for producing outdoor statuary of a lasting nature. This alloy of copper and tin has properties that allow for great sculptural detail, and finishes that develop beautiful patina over time. This alloy has the quality that oxidation only occurs on the outer layer giving a permanence of time. The lost wax process that was started with the ancient Greeks, was perfected during the Renaissance, and is the method we use today in creating fine cast bronze works.

Here, we start with a wax model of the statue, complete in every detail. A mold is made in a flexible rubber material reinforced in a plaster covering. A wax model is made from the mold and wax rods are connected to this. A ceramic outer shell is cast over this wax base.  Placed in a kiln, the piece is heated until the wax runs out and in its place molten bronze is poured. The space that was wax rods allow the molten wax to dissipate. The cooled casting set free from the ceramic shell, is cleaned, and finished in a uniform patina and ready for crating.
