Fleeing Paris in WW11, Alberto Giacometti witnessed terrible carnage which he later captured in four bronze sculptures of isolated body parts: a hand, a nose, a head, and a 7-foot leg (‘la Jambe”) to be auctioned at Christie’s in early November with a high estimate of $15m.Two years ago Christie’s sold a casting of the hand (“La Main”) for $26m, more than double the expected price. Giacometti conceived the project in 1947, but didn’t get around to finishing La Jambe until 10-years later. This piece is cast using the "Lost Wax Method" and is 100% Bronze with a dark brown patina and is signed Giacometti.

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?
