Offered for sale here is a large cast stone ARTS & CRAFTS style vase measuring approx. 15 1/2" tall. This piece features a frog and cattails and is rendered in a bronze tone. It measures approx 7" in diameter at the base and the weight is approx. 6 1/2 lbs. It has a waterproof inside liner. I start by sculpting an original in plasticine following which a mold is made. Adding a combination of tint powders to the original mix of concrete and artist plaster, each vase is hand cast in my home studio. Once cured, the vase is rubbed down with a finishing compound and hand buffed to a soft sheen. The result is a piece that looks and feels like a period bronze at a tiny fraction of the price. Please don't confuse these with mass produced resin (plastic!) sculptures. Periodic application of a dark wax followed by light buffing will maintain this piece's warm patina.
