Click to Enlarge
The Tunbridge Garland & Weave Bronze Urn is a extraordinary large bronze urn. The urn features two elegant handles which curl down from the egg and dart lip (rim) of the urn to rest on child sculptures on the bowl body at the neck ring. The neck features a beautiful detailed weave design. A garland wraps around the bowl between the sculptures around the bowl body above a dart design on the lower bowl above the fillet. The urn rests on a flared patterned fillet which rests on a round base. It is extremely well done and it is quite arresting. The craftsmanship is extraordinary. Inspired by French garden artifacts this urn is a terrific focal point to any garden setting inside or outside. Ideally placed on a pedestal base, but large enough to stand alone or as pair, this urn is large enough to be an architectural highlight by a formal entrance or indoors in a foyer or formal setting.
The Tunbridge Garland & Weave Bronze Urn is cast by the traditional, Lost Wax Bronze Casting method (links to a full description of the method). This labor intensive and time consuming method of casting bronze statues, ensure pristine quality and vivid detail. ThisTunbridge Garland & Weave Bronze Urn features 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 Tunbridge Garland & Weave Bronze Urn is available in the Classic French Brown Bronze patina as shown.
