Stool Bronze Croc’
This bold design puts the emphasis on the art of bronze casting with its heavily textured top. This item is as much about art as it is seating!
We have created a ‘signature’ look with our exclusive bronze designs. Many of these provide masculine glamour. Others are softer and more graceful with an organic simplicity revealed only in silhouette. Bronze, with its bold timeless appeal, has a strength that is perceptible visually and to the touch.
This bronze collection is not a pale imitation from inferior metals, but created by a process used for millennia and still used by the craftsmen of today.
The technique is called lost wax casting. Firstly the design is modelled in wax before being wrapped in clay and dried. Once ready it is heated allowing the wax to pour out, hence the name ‘lost wax’! The cavity left in the clay is then filled by molten bronze. Later the mould is broken revealing the bronze casting. Then a process of sanding, chasing and finishing begins to create the final article. A gentle patina will develop over time defining these as true heirlooms.
