All our sculptures are meticulously fashioned using 100% hot cast bronze and handcrafted through the time-honored lost wax casting technique. We are committed to never offering low-quality cold cast sculptures or resin alternatives.
Hot cast bronze is crafted by pouring molten metal blend into a mold. Prior to pouring, our artisans craft the mold using materials like clay, rubber, or wood. Each mold permits a finite number of pours, restricting the quantity of sculptures generated in each production cycle before necessitating a new mold due to its eventual destruction.
In contrast, cold cast bronze involves resins and plastics layered with paint. These creations are lighter, less durable, and more affordable.
Broadly, hot cast bronzes demand extensive time and have production limitations, while cold cast resins can be mass-produced at a lower cost.
We offer a diverse array of sculptures, encompassing both original artworks and reproductions. Numerous creations originate from the artistic vision and craftsmanship of our commissioned artists, while certain iconic classics are meticulously reproduced by our artisans. Regardless of origin, both original pieces and reproductions follow the same meticulous sculpting and hand-pouring process, resulting in each piece bearing its distinct uniqueness.
For any of the scenarios mentioned, rest assured that we will address the situation without any extra charges on your part. We're committed to providing solutions, including refunds or replacements, for any problematic orders. Kindly get in touch with us, furnishing the specifics of your concern, and we will initiate an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) process for you. For further information, consult our comprehensive return policy.
Absolutely! If you come across any of our pieces being offered at a lower price elsewhere, kindly reach out to us, and we'll make every effort to match or even surpass the price for you.
There's no need for concern if you notice a rattling sound coming from certain sculptures. This sound is caused by sand that can occasionally get trapped within the sculpture during the casting process. This is a normal occurrence and a result of the intricacies of the handmade lost wax casting technique. It's important to note that this does not indicate a flaw in the sculpture.
The cost of shipping is determined by the weight and dimensions of the sculpture. Given that we handle substantial and delicate art pieces, our shipping process is meticulously thorough. We employ custom Styrofoam molds designed specifically for each sculpture, along with Styrofoam peanuts, and occasionally double boxing for larger items. It's important to note that these precautions impact the overall weight and dimensions of the package.
