Art Nouveau Vintage Figural & Flowers Bronze Planter Sculpture Deco Decor Sale For Sale
Condition: This sculpture is in perfect condition. Bronze Dimensions :Height 29" x Width 13" Weight : 27 LBS Inventory :84Y538B16548
The solid bronze planter is not only aesthetic in it's artistry but functional
as well to hold a blooming plant. Beautiful textured details are seen throughout
the entirety of the sculpture, from the pot holder to the base, entangling a
flair of the Art Deco style with that of Classicism. The beautiful maiden, in a
long dress, rests her back on the column becoming integrated to it at the base.
There is an overall sensuality and pensiveness to her as she stands with her
arms suspended with grace, feeling the magic of the air, listening to the echoes
in her heart's chambers. The planter was cast using the archaic lost-wax method
and stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. It has a twin mirror
plant stand to complete the pair and double the beauty. Found at the base of the
structure is the European Bronze Finery stamp ensuring quality and is signed by
artist Ed Chen.
Although mechanization has facilitated the lost wax process of bronze
casting, the procedure is basically the same as that used by the Chinese when
they first developed the process in the 2nd millennium BC.
This image is coated with a silicone rubber molding material that makes
two rubber mold halves (each rubber mold has a front and a back piece). A
fiberglass outer shell is added to the back of each mold so it retains its
shape and rigidity during subsequent uses.
These molds are the only components that are ever re-used in the casting
process. All other components are re-created for each casting.
Once the wax has cooled, the mold is peeled away, yielding a wax image
(the wax positive") duplicating the original sculpture.
This image must then be "touched -up" to remove any seam lines, scratches
or other flaws, as well as to recreate any pattern or texturing that was
lost or damaged when the wax was made.
The quality of the finished bronze relies on a clean, high quality mold
and an impeccably recreated wax image that is as near to perfect as possible.
These sprus are created by attaching wax rods to the finished wax form at
strategically spaced locations.
After the gating is completed each wax form is dipped in a liquid ceramic
silica-sand compound so it is completely coated inside and out. Holes
called "patches" have been cut into the wax to allow an entrance to the inside
of the form.
The form is subsequently dipped 6 to 12 or more times over a period of
several days until the desired shell thickness is achieved.
As the sculpture cools the ceramic shell begins to pop away from the
This shell will be completely broken away, using a hammer and chisel,
before the superfluous metal materials are cut away.
Any pieces of a sculpture that were cast separately are welded back onto
the sculpture and any seam lines or other imperfections are removed or
The sculpture is then polished in preparation for application of the
The various colors, patterns and textures obtained in the patina process
are achieved through a combined application of chemicals and heat, augmented
by hand stippling, or spraying with an air brush, and sealed with lacquer
This edition number is decided by the artist, usually after the first
piece has been cast, and individually stamped on each piece (i.e. 1/100) thus
concluding the process of bronze sculpture production.
