Looking for Limited edition bronze cats sculptures to buy? Bronze statues are perfect for a special gift occasion or if you want to infuse some art in to your home. Depending on the size and complexity of the piece, the original sculpture is coated with multiple layers of a liquid silicone mold material, which is then covered with a thick layer of plaster. Molds of larger pieces are made in sections. Desk Buddy molds, being a little smaller, can be done in one piece. Each essentially creates a perfect negative image of a particular sculpture. At this point, hot wax is poured into the mold to create a solid wax piece. Each wax will later become a bronze.
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. Find more details at Fox bronze sculpture.
Tip for getting bronze art appraised: Know what you’re looking at. Beyond finding the artist, learning about the types of bronze casts will help as well. There are four major types of bronze sculpture casts: original casts, recasts, replica casts, and after casts. An original cast is exactly as it sounds. It’s the original from the artist. A recast is made from the original mold usually after the artist has passed away. A replica cast is a copy of the original bronze sculpture made by someone other than the artist. And last, an after cast is made from a mold taken from an original bronze sculpture.
Bronze sculptures cleaning: Once you get your sculpture washed, rinse the rag out and run clean water over your sculpture. Give it one last wipe down and let the sculpture dry. It is really important to let the piece dry completely because the next stage is waxing. Waxing with water still on the surface can trap the moisture, which is not good.
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.

Dozens of digital images and sketches later, the subtle positions, relationships, and attitudes of my animal characters capture the feeling and story I seek to convey in the piece.
