Warm and earthy travertine stone pedestals provide a striking visual compliment to the metal figures, but are also wonderful seated on mantels, window sills, garden stones, and more.

I bought this as an engagement gift and it is absolutely precious. The figures move and you can add children as the family grows. You can also move the people farther apart and closer together depending on the situation - great tool for relationship communication.

About

I owe my success to all the "little people" :) From romantic cast bronze sculptures of couples, to families, animals, wearable art and more.

The adventure began six years ago with the first rustic pair of bronze figurines. Since then, the processes, the shaping of the figures, the finishes, and the various sizes have evolved into the loving couples and bronze family portraits I'm known for today. This art is represented nationwide in Boulder, Aspen, and Santa Fe, and abroad in Copenhagen, Scandinavia, Germany and the UK. They can be found in fine galleries such as Smith Klein, Rangewest, Elysee Fine Art, Simone Beckett, and many reputable online destinations.

Bronze is a wonderful metal! It feels substantial in the hand and polishes to a warm wholesome luster that helps to carry the themes of romantic love, strength, and commitment.

These original designs were created in clay and wax. A mold is taken from the clay original, and then the wax is reworked, Larger works are shell cast. The miniature bronzes are small enough to be investment cast; the same way that silver jewelry is made.

I receive the raw bronze figures in various sizes from the caster, then finish the metal work and apply the patina in my Santa Fe studio. Afterward, I assemble the couples and families by mounting them on sculpture bases of natural travertine stone or onyx which is locally sourced in New Mexico. The stone bases are cut and polished; often retaining rough veins of crystalline and earthy texture. In this setting, the smooth bronze surfaces appear all the more sumptuous!

My buyers have also placed them on fireplace mantels and hearths, on found stones in gardens, on tabletops, windowsills, on the edges of flower pots, and many other places limited only by the imagination. They grab attention just about anywhere they appear in the home decor!

The future promises continued evolution and new adventures! I'm currently applying 3D design techniques to a few of my metal art works, and am gradually expanding my palette of metals to include sterling silver and others. I've also received a recent commission to explore much larger, nearly life-size figures. In addition to the trademark bronze sculptures, I'm now working with new forms such as birds nests, bowls, wearable infinity pendants, and wherever else the heart may lead! Please stay in touch by adding my shop to your favorites list and visit me now and then to watch how things develop!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

The artist Yenny Cocq will personally work with you on your custom order. For larger custom orders a 50% downpayment is required.
Custom orders are limited to the figurines that I use to mix and match.
Any other orders are special one of a kind commissions and require upfront payment as well as a clear scope of work. Please inquire further.
I do not engrave your sculpture. I can sign it on the bottom of the stone base. If you want it engraved take it to a local engraver.

Stone bases can not be shipped to Australia!

Care instructions

The sculptures are created in the lost wax casting process. No pair is alike and the shape and patina vary. The sculptures are either waxed or sprayed with a protective coating that prevents further tarnishing. Occasional light dusting or polishing with a soft cloth will not harm your sculpture. Harsh cleaners or abrasives will damage the coating. If you have purchased a natural stone base with your sculpture, be aware that these are also one of a kind. Natural cracks and enclosures are adding to the texture of the stone. If your sculpture is unmounted, you can apply some museum putty to keep them in place. You can also move them around and play with them to express a mood.
If you want to mount them outdoors please contact me.

Wholesale availability

Yes we Wholesale:
either go the my etsy wholesale portion or visit www.yennycocqsculpture.com sign in with your company or gallery name and purchase at 50% minimum purchases required for fist time buyers.

Gift wrapping and packaging

The stones are wrapped in bubble wrap. Larger mounted sculptures are not gift wrapped.

Please request special gift wrap and gift message.
For special wedding or larger anniversary gifts I will charge a gift wrap fee.

Sizing details

It is at times difficult to make out the size from an image. Make sure you read the description carefullyAll my sculptures have the dimensions in the text. . I can send you images with a tape measure to show the exact size of the sculpture and base.
