Two of Us: honeymoon keepsake, we were at the waterfall on Kauai


Etsy shop YennyCocq

Romantic bronze figurines, for lovers and loving couples. A symbolic gift to remember your honeymoon by.
I took the picture of a waterfall on Kauai during one of these precious moments to remember.

These 4" bronze sculptures are created and cast in the lost wax process, the same way precious jewelry is made.

Each bronze figure is then carefully finished to achieve either a polished or rustic look.

This bronze couple can be mounted on Texas shell stone or New Mexico travertine.
The bases include fossils and/or crystals. As they are natural stone and no two are alike.

Please contact me it you have any questions, or would love a custom order.

A little description of creation and casting process:

Creating an original bronze sculpture is quite involved and labor intensive.
I start out modeling the original either in clay or another sculpting material from wax to wood.
I sculpt with the human emotion and connectedness in mind. All of my little couples and families should convey that bond.
Upon completion a silicone rubber mold is created and covered with plaster for multiple reuses for my larger work. Then liquid hot wax is poured into to mold. When it's hardened it can easily be released from the mold. The unfinished wax copies are carefully reworked with sculpting tools.
Once the waxes are to my satisfaction, I send them to the foundry. They attach the spruces, dip them into a ceramic mixture until a shell of about and inch has built up. Then they are adding the waxes in their shell to the kiln. The wax is molten out and the negative is retained in the ceramic shell mold. Then the liquid bronze (it's super hot) is poured into this second mold. After a cooling time the shell is destroyed. The cleanup takes a while, and the rest is sandblasted. The spruces are roughly cut with a plasma cutter. Then I receive the raw bronze back.
Some welding might be necessary, as well as metal cutting, chasing, and sanding.
After the raw bronze is once more sandblasted and carefully cleaned, I apply the patina, either with hot or cold application, which takes a while to oxidize. Sometimes it takes a few days to get the desired result. Then parts are highlighted by polishing and a protective coating is sprayed on as a last finishing step.
