When it comes to the world of the bronze sculpture for sale, there are a variety of materials used in the creation process. In the past, these have included bronze, stone and ceramic, to name a few. Many bronze sculptures created down through the centuries are no longer with us. They have either been melted down for other uses or simply lost over time. The bronze alloy used centuries ago and today is basically the same with a consistency of 90% copper and 10% tin.
Creation of Bronze Sculptures
Today, one of the popular ways to create a bronze sculpture is through the ‘Lost Wax Process’. This process is carried out in order to reproduce museum originals of the pieces. As well, you can count on the sculptures to be created with 100% American bronze. A splendid patina is hand applied to the bronze, which produces natural diversities in the sculptures’ textures. A process of hand-rubbing then fleshes out the various highlights and details of the piece resulting in a truly unique piece of artwork.
The result is that no two bronze sculptures are exactly the same. Bronze statues can be placed upon a marble base and also etched with a brass plate that displays the name of the sculpture as well as the name of the artist. These pieces can be purchased as gifts for others or for one’s own home for indoor or outdoor decor.
When you are evaluating any bronze sculpture for sale, take into account the quality of the piece. There should be no chips or cracks or wearing of the metal that can diminish the value of the sculpture. Any damage can be quite time consuming and expensive to repair. Be sure you purchase from a reputable and experienced dealer in the industry.
