The sculptures in this series are actually composed of assembled lines. Whether it’s a triangular face or a scalloped cloak. As a representation of abstraction, this group of sculptures is perfect and successful. 33 steps were taken by YouFine to achieve the perfection of the bronze sculptures. Each step is supervised to ensure no mistakes are made. Even online, our customers can shop with confidence. Our life-size bronze sculptures are cast using the lost wax method. This is the oldest and most traditional sculpting process.
Chadwick was one of the most important British sculptors who, along with Reg Butler, Eduardo Paolozzi and William Turnbull, belonged to a group of artists described by art theorist Sir Herbert Read as important in the school of “the geometry of fear.” Chadwick was exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 1952, along with several other sculptors. After the exhibition, Read used the term for the first time to describe the aesthetic created by this group. Chadwick’s skills as a welder led him to develop a unique style and method of making works that involved fixing a metal skin over the skeleton of a steel rod. This technique allowed Chadwick to give his figurative works great vitality. The artist often depicts human and animal figures.
There is a reason why the traditional process has been preserved to this day. It preserves the original image of the sculpture to the greatest extent possible. Therefore, our sculptures must be of the highest quality. At each step of the process, we send a video or pictures to our customers. A good product stands up to inspection and testing.

Material: The material of the statue is then decided by the client. The sculptor may also use a small clay model to better portray his conception of the design. The clay model can be modified to fine tune the client’s wishes.
Mini-Sculpture: Finally, the bronze sculpture artist may finalize the miniature model of the final design in order to give the client a preview into how the final product will look. This model is made using the material decided, and it can be used by the client for marketing purposes so that he can raise funds for the sculpture.
Creating the Backbone: The backbone of the bronze statue, also called the armature consists of a steel frame with foam added to it in order to resemble the rough outline of the final product. This is then sealed with a latex coat to secure it.
The Sculpting: The main work starts only now. Many pounds of hot clay are used and applied by hand to “block in” the design for the first time. The bronze sculpture artist then invests a lot of time adding more clay, removing some clay and molding the clay until the final product finally resembles the required design. Tiny details are added on to give more preciseness to the bronze statue and make it more real.
Remove dust with a damp cloth.
Do not use metal objects or wire brushes to clean the sculpture.
Do not apply abrasives or cleansers that will possibly scratch the finish.
ZUD – Non- Abrasive Cleaner. Use to remove stubborn stains. Zud cleans all metal surfaces including bronze. Zud can be used in powder or liquid form.
Lemon Oil – Apply a small amount of oil with a paintbrush or soft cloth. Cover the entire figure with oil. Wipe the surface gently with a soft cloth to take off the excess oil.
Paste Wax- A very thin, even coat of wax should be applied with a soft cloth. Allow the wax to sit and dry before polishing. Wax should be applied after bronze has been cleaned and dried. Do not apply if using lemon oil.
Do Nothing: Many bronze owners prefer to sit back and enjoy the natural reaction and aging process of their sculpture.

Ancient Sculpture Gallery is proud to present you with lost wax bronze reproductions of statues and busts from the Egyptian, Greek, Hellenistic, Roman, Asian Oriental, and Western civilizations. “Lost Wax” bronze (or hot-cast bronze) is actually 100% pure Bronze – essentially copper and tin. The making of a “lost wax” bronze is a complex and time consuming process, and specific technical expertise is needed to accomplish the task of making a bronze. The most known and used process for making “lost wax” involves pouring of molten bronze. This is the same method used by the ancient civilizations to create bronze sculptures. Our lost wax bronze sculptures are produced in this same technique.
