"Van" was my third bronze created, made in 2007, a one-of-a-kind sculpture, and will not be reproduced! It's my original design and based on one of my favorite characters in the Urantia Book, "Van the Steadfast". I created this sculpture to help refine my molding and foundry process.

I finished the bronze with a cold silver patina developed by Ron Young. It was then lacquered and waxed to seal the finish. The bronze is set on a base chiseled from Colorado Yule marble, weighs 62 lbs, and has dimensions of h:23 w:13 d:18". This sculpture is ready to ship upon order.

Thanks for visiting my Etsy shop! I'm a figurative sculptor and jewelry designer, and cast lost-wax bronzes and custom jewelry in my small foundry workshop. Visit http://effinger.us/ to learn more about my artwork and foundry process.

God Bless,
Paul Ray Effinger

Let me just say that it is the most amazing ring!!! I had seen it in the photo gallery, but the artist (who is also so amazing to work with) had created it special for someone with a size 5. I had wondered if it could be made into a size 8. I know it took a lot of time and effort to do for me, but the artist did so graciously and I could not be more pleased with the result. Artist was extremely communicative throughout the process & always, always very pleasant. I would highly recommend working with them. You will not be disappointed. And, their work is very high quality!!!

We absolutely love the custom lapel pins he created for us. Amazing! The only thing that we loved more was his top-notch customer service. Thank you for a phenomenal experience.

Paul is an absolute pleasure to work with and did an excellent job. My custom Louisiana State Acadian flag pins came out perfectly and are exactly what I had envisioned. He has made me into a loyal customer and I will be coming to him for my future jewelry projects. I can't wait to place an order for a set of his awesome 1911 grips! Thank you Paul!

LOVE!! Amazing ring and amazing customer service!! I contacted the seller with questions regarding the ring and decided to upgrade to a complete custom ring. The attention to detail and passion in his talent is amazing and it shows in the quality of the ring. He called me several times to communicate the progress and provided pictures along the way. The ring was very well packaged and absolutely beautiful!
