Fish sculpture in silver plated bronze

Fish, bottom dweller eating algae; a unique piece of hand-cast bronze and patinated in Sterling silver. Dimensions approx. L 30 x W 17.5 x H 12.5 cm.

This fish is made using an ancient technique known as the "Lost Wax method" or "cire perdue," which is used to create metal objects, especially bronze statues, sculptures, jewelry and other works of art. This method has its origins in ancient Mesopotamia and has been used for thousands of years. The "lost wax" method is an artisanal and time-consuming technique, but it results in detailed and accurate metal works of art. This method is still widely used by sculptors, silversmiths and artists around the world to create unique and high-quality metal objects.

The object or sculpture to be made is first shaped in beeswax. The wax structure is then immersed in a liquid ceramic slurry, which once cured forms a hard cast. During the follow-up process to heat-proof it, the wax will melt and run off (lost wax). Therefore, the mold can only be used once, creating a unique object.

Minor irregularities or imperfections in the material are normal and the result of the traditional alloying and casting process. The sculpture has received a finishing coat of genuine Sterling silver after casting.

Do not polish with silver polish as this will thin the silver layer. It is recommended that the object be lightly polished with a soft cotton or viscose cloth or sponge to refresh the luster. Without polishing, a gold-like discoloration will develop over time, which is often considered even more beautiful.
