My sculptures are cast in different materials, though I often use one of two materials: bronze and neolith.
A very valuable material
Some of my work is cast in bronze. Given the high value of bronze and the fact that it is so heavy, the bronze sculptures are limited editions of up to eight pieces. This also makes them more expensive than other materials.
High quality liquid plastic casting resin
I also work with neolith. This plastic casting resin is very high quality material which I have used several times. In terms of appearance, there is absolutely no difference between neolith and bronze. Just like bronze, the plastic casting resin is a hard material so the sculptures can be placed outdoors. However, the colour layer needs to be protected. This is easy to do by treating the sculpture once or twice a year with plain beeswax or another type of wax. Many people believe that, given the frequent theft of bronze sculptures, that neolith sculptures are a better choice. The limited edition neolith sculptures are individually numbered and sold with a certificate of authenticity.
