HARES OF FRITH
Sculptures from Frith .'s collections
Renowned sculptors from England designed beautiful animal sculptures that appear surprisingly natural. You must check out this collection! They are statues made of resin with a special bronze powder mix. Because of their appearance, they have been placed in the Bronze product group. The production method is therefore called cold-cast bronze in English.
All sculptures are UV and frost resistant and can therefore be placed both indoors and outdoors. The outside of the statues is treated with wax. This will lose its shine over time under the influence of weather conditions.
Part of the special collection is included here. In England the name Frith is well known in the field of animal sculptures. Their collection came about through collaboration with renowned English sculptors, who make and produce sculptures exclusively for Frith. You will not find these models anywhere else. The designs are very beautiful and the positions in which the animals are designed are so natural. With the eyes squinted a bit, it looks like it is a real animal and not a sculpture. This is because the artists who create the designs for Frith do the entire design process by hand. No machine is involved. This is the only way to give the end product the same authentic appearance as the clay or wax prototype made by the artist.
The English sculptors of the animal sculptures included here are Paul Jenkins, Thomas Meadows and Veronica Ballan (the furry-looking animals).
Together with the artists, Frith developed a process 21 years ago that gives the animal sculptures that special bronze-like appearance. This is done by a connection between resin mixed with a special bronze powder that has been processed through and through, in the entire base material. At the end of the making process, each sculpture is manually updated and polished in a special way. Each end product is therefore unique, because there are always small differences during the touch-up and polishing process.
The animal sculptures have the weight and material properties of stone, but an appearance of bronze with a soft to matte glossy finish.
With the purchase of a Frith sculpture, we guarantee you the purchase of a quality product that you and your future generations will enjoy for many years to come.
