We endeavour to create patina surfaces which enhance every sculpture. With expert skill, Andy can create various effects of colour and tone by applying chemicals to the surface of the bronze as he heats it with a blow torch.
Recently we cast these two pieces for artist Clare Fergusson-Walker.
Clare says of her work,
‘I often don’t really know what they are about until they are finished and I can look at them and try to decipher their meaning, they are often about sadness, beauty and the concept of what that means, grief as well as joy and also often feature archetypal characters from myths and legends.I’ve come to realize that they are the language of my sub-conscious mind communicating with me and thus can be interpreted as one might do a dream.’
The deep verdigris patina with variations in tone help to emphasise the dream like quality of Clare’s work.
