Cast Bronze, Bronze


Organic casting of Hens and Chicks flower. Bronze casting with light brown patina. One of a kind sculpture. Cast directly from the actual flower. From "A Study in Organics" series. The piece pictured is the exact piece you will receive.

Organic casting is very similar to the lost wax casting process. The model, in this case flower from one of my hens and chicks plants, is dried, posed, and encased in a plaster-like substance known as investment. The cylinder, containing the model and the investment, is then heated slowly to 1300f and held there for several hours while the organic model burns away and the plaster cures. Molten metal is then poured into the cavity where the model used to be. This (ideally, under perfect conditions) creates an exact duplicate of the original model.

Piece measures 6" tall by 3" wide.

This was one of the best experiences I've had. I own several businesses and have needed several signs over the years. I've always been disappointed. Not this time! Rich was so easy to work with, kept me up to date with the project, and when it arrived I was blown away. It's exactly what I asked for and then some. He put his own twist on it, and I trusted his creativity. So happy to have found this shop!

This amulet is awesome! There are no others that even compare! Trust me when I say all the others aren't even three diminutional. This is as close as you will ever get to the genuine article. And the gentleman who makes them is as genuine and helpful as his amulet is! Great Buy! Great experience! Thanks Rich!
