To purchase the Miranda sculpture please contact the artist. As this artwork is handmade colour can vary slightly.
Bronze Resin (known also as Cold Cast Bronze) is made from a polyester epoxy resin with real bronze powder mixed into the surface layer. The final product is patinated (a term that describes the reaction of chemicals with the bronze powder in the surface) to give it a very similar colour to foundry bronze.
Foundry Bronze is made from molten metal using the lost wax method. Bronze metal is a blend of copper and tin along with other metals to give different characteristics to the final product.
Both forms begin as a clay or wax sculpture, from which a mould is taken, but Foundry Bronze casting is a costly and time-consuming process. Cold Casting allows for faster production and a more affordable sculpture.
The intention behind the Miranda sculpture
I sculpted Miranda from Shakespeare’s ‘Tempest’ for a pond in Girls School, in Niagra, Canada.
