Bronze Elephant

We cast this lamp from an original Japanese example C1920.

Love the fine detail to this chap and the finish is fantastic.

Lost wax needs a model of the design to be made in wax. The wax model is covered with clay, dried and heated. The wax melts and pours out (is lost) through flues, leaving a cavity the same as the original wax. Molten bronze is poured into the cavity completely filling the space. The clay is broken and a bronze model remains ready for sanding, chasing and finishing.

Size: 13cm diameter x 40cm high.
Finish: Bronze
