Discovery. Connecting With The Client

Our designer listens to customers ‘ opinions, studies the personality and characteristics of the subject, and finds the ideal posture, size and overall design for each commissioned bronze monument. The emotion and history behind the sculpture is very important. The designer has a gift for understanding the client’s vision of a custom bronze statue. As part of the custom bronze statue process, she works with people to capture the visual and emotional sculptures. Let Lena show you the depth of her creative talents. Contact customer is the most important part of ordering custom bronze statues, especially custom bronze portraits.
Sketch. Client’s Idea Captured In A Drawing
It starts with a simple sketch. The versatile artist will outline the design of bronze sculptures to help clients imagine their custom statues. Before entering the next step, the customer approves the overall composition of the statue. In this process, the customer agrees to entrust the price and terms of the bronze carving.
Maquette (Small Scale Clay Model) Of Your Custom Statue
When the client and the artist agree to the terms of the contract and receive an advance, the artist begins carving the model. This is a small clay model that is a work-changing model that was created before the larger clay monument. The miniature model allows her to develop the right positioning, invite feedback about custom statues, and refine any details. The model will have all the major proportions and details of future custom bronze statues, but will not be similar.
Full Size Clay Statue
Once the customer approves the small model artist begins to expand the clay into a full-size custom statue or monument. Additional payments are required for each milestone in the custom statue process. Sculptors use the precise calculations and measurements of small models to create a full-size clay statue. Customers are welcome to visit the studio for personal statue review. After the customer finally approves the large (full-size) custom monument in the clay, it is transported to the bronze foundry for the lost wax bronze casting process.
Foundry. Lost Wax Casting Process
Highly skilled technicians use the lost wax method to convert clay models into bronze. First, the foundry made the statue of the precision silicone mold. This technique captures all the details of a large clay statue. These molds are used to produce wax molds for future custom bronze statues. Immerse the wax mold in fine ceramics until it is painted wax like. Before pouring the hot molten bronze into the mold, heat the part of the ceramic mold to melt the wax. When each part is cast in bronze, the parts are assembled and welded together to construct a bronze statue. Our artist will personally supervises and approves the foundry process to ensure the highest quality of her custom large bronze monuments and exquisite custom bronze portraits.
