The rich brown patina of the Wren, our most popular birds, is beautifully contrasted with the soft colours of the hand painted Apple Blossom. This technique of painting bronze can be traced back to Vienna in the mid 18thcentury and since then has not been widely followed. We feel these accents to the bronze enrich the presentation and are pleased to re-introduce the technique.

Height: 18cm x Width: 13.2cm x Depth: 9.8cm Weight: 485g
Limited Edition: 150
Sculptor: Michael Simpson

The Wrens are made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The design is finished by the art of patination where various acids are applied to the surface of the bronze and heat applied to create a deep rich brown patina.  The blossom and foliage are delicately hand painted using artist's oils. Then bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.

Apple Blossom is beautifully presented in a printed box containing a signed certificate of authenticity. The bronze is engraved with the sculptor’s signature and limited edition number, matching the certificate enclosed.
