Any fan of the Roaring 20’s, Jazz and F.Scott Fitzgerald will adore this stunning Flapper. They were considered to be the “New Breed” of young women. The troublesome youth flaunted “unacceptable behavior”. Unacceptable being smoking, drinking, sex and…(gasp) driving. The end of World War I gave birth to these party loving, swing dancing, free spirits. This demure flapper can`t help but to do the Charleston even though she has already kicked off her heels for the night. Her bobbed hair curls out from beneath her roaring 20`s hat, which was a popular style of the Jazz obsessed era. Her dress shimmies as she moves. It is a dark brown patina . A matching brown sash loops around her back. 100% bronze and handmade, this sculpture was cast using the “Lost Wax Method” and mounted on a marble base and is signed T.d Guirande.

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?
