This labor intensive and time consuming method of casting bronze statues, ensure pristine quality and vivid detail. These amphorae feature intricate, hand forged details with a beautiful brown fire-applied patina.
Applying patina to bronze using the French method (fire and heat) is an age old traditional skill requiring expert craftsmanship. Each patina is hand applied and the patination result may vary making each sculpt unique. All bronze statuary will develop a natural patina when left in natures elements. The aged patina on bronzes is often desired, but can be prevented by care and cleaning of the bronze statue by applying beeswax or other polish to prevent a patina from forming.
The Bronze Leaf Garland Amphorae Pair is available in the Classic French Brown Bronze patina as shown.
