Seller: originalcityjewellers (2,826) 100%, Location: UK, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 302871405377 Pair of Little Owls (949) Limited Edition Numbered Piece 195/200 Length: 7cm Height: 5.2cm Weight: 295g Launch: January 2017 Sculpture cast in solid bronze by Michael Simpson. This piece is a traditional foundry solid bronze sculpture, and not the cheap cold cast resin which some mistaken sellers call bronze. Crafted using the "lost wax" hot cast method, a highly skilled process used for over 3500 years, and completed with a beautiful patina finish, these techniques guarantee that no two items will ever be identical. Michael Simpson is an unusual sculptor in that his body of work spans a variety of different subjects. He enjoys working on several sculpts at the same time, moving from one to the next as inspiration dictates. Michael has the unique ability to design extremely accurately and yet with loose contemporary feel, making his style easily recognized and much appreciated by collectors. Richard Cooper & Company work with UK sculptors and designers to create stunning and unique foundry bronze sculptures. Products range from the flamboyant figurative work of Landanski, through to the detailed wildlife studies of Michael Simpson. The foundry cast bronzes are produced using the lost wax method and sealed with a protective wax, preserving and enhancing the rich layers of patina applied to the surface. Each bronze is decorated and finished either using traditional patinas or by hand painting with acrylics and enamels. Most pieces are limited edition from 50 to a maximum of 150 depending on the piece. This ensures that the work will retain a value that will not be diluted by over-production and makes this item suitable as either a gift or an investment opportunity.
