Our original is made from modeling clay. Our subjects are animal, emphasis on amphibians, reptiles, and sea creatures. A master mold is made from original, to reproduce into a cast resin armature. Irregular polished stones, shell, or recycled hand blown glass are placed appropriately on armature. Through a unique process of electroforming, we apply pure copper to encase the piece and highlight the stones. The piece is then oxidized, polished, and sealed with three coats of lacquer. Each piece takes several days to complete and is a one of a kind.
