Material explained: Foundry Bronze is a metal alloy that is shaped using the traditional method of bronze casting, using the lost wax process – used by sculptors in ancient Greece. The bronze is melted at extremely high temperatures and then poured into a ceramic mould. The lost wax method of casting is a highly skilled, complex, time-consuming and labour intensive process. The skill required in the casting, combined with the innate value of the bronze (which is made from copper and tin), gives rise to the comparatively high price of a bronze sculpture.

The beautiful bronze sculpture is a casting of an original sculpture. It is hand cast by a British foundry or resin caster and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. This is an original foundry or resin casting of the sculptor`s work that she has personally approved.

Artist Comment

The Sitting Pig sculpture was commissioned by a client whose family had always loved a pair of bronze pigs at Beale Park. With many photos and memories of the pigs there, they wanted something for their home which would bring many more happy memories in the future. Importantly, they wanted a pig that could be sat on! So more fun photos of their grandchildren could be taken one day. The Sitting Pig is based on two of my own rescue Kune Kune pigs, Pog and Doris. They were rehomed here through the wonderful Greenacres Rescue Centre. A little bit of each of them went into my sculpture, and it was a lovely opportunity to work from life and capture their wonderful faces and characters. Happily, I think my clients loved their sculpture, and I hear piglets may be on the way!

  • The ArtParkS Guarentee

    All the sculptures on the website are described by the Artists themselves stating the materiel they are made from and their dimensions. If they are stated to be suitable for outdoors they have a guarentee of 10 years subject to the effects of weathering which will alter their colour and finish over the years unless you give them  regular cleaning and maintenance. For instance Bronze and to a lesser extent bronze resin/cold cast bronze will aquire a green patina, usually rather sought after and all could attract moss  lichen and a greeny pollen especially under trees which should be removed regularly with warm water and washing up liquid.
    Iron and steel will oxidise(rust ) and this falls outside our guarentee.
    Organic materiel like wood, bark willow is variable and depends to a great extent on where it is sited and you should discuss any guarentee direct with the Artist as this too falls outside our Guarentee.
