It's rough out on the open sea. The waves tower over the small vessel. The ship tosses and sways. Water batters the aged wood. Many men who made their living in these fierce waters, during the most violent seasons, have never returned home.This sculpture symbolizes life at high sea. The seasoned sailor leans into his wheel and fights to keep control, as waves roll up his side. He is dressed like a hardworking fisherman with a soggy shirt, trousers, and hat. He stands on the curve of a wave. The base of the wheel is surrounded by waves. This would be a fine gift to anyone who makes their living out at sea.100% bronze and handmade, this brown patina sculpture was cast using the "Lost Wax Method" and mounted on a marble base and is signed G. Michel.

FAQ's

What material are your sculptures made out of?

All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!

What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?

Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold.  Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood.  Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.

Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.

Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.

Do you do custom work?
