Art and Nature: Delightful new limited edition bronze ‘Wren with Oak Leaf’ by international sculptor Michael Simpson
Sculpted by the highly regarded Michael Simpson, this new limited edition bronze ‘Wren with Oak Leaf’ is a delightful characterisation of Nature in Art. Clearly nest-building, the diminutive bird in solid bronze has all the ‘jizz’ of the garden wren. It will bring a breath of fresh air from garden and countryside into life indoors, and make a treasured gift.
This superb limited edition sculpture is made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The design is finished using the fine art of patination to create a rich brown patina. The oak leaf is carefully hand painted using artist’s oils. The bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.
It is a charming gift for any lover of the garden and its birdlife. Each bronze arrives beautifully boxed for presentation, with a certificate of authenticity. The bronze stands 8cm tall and 8.5cm wide, weighs 160g, perfect for a side table, mantelpiece or desk, and is in a limited edition of 200.
