Moulded and cast by my family's business at LSSculptureCasting.com
Have a look at the website to see more about the sculpture moulding and casting process.

Each sculpture has been hand made and finished to order and will have a 'Certificate of Authenticity' signed and numbered by the artist supplied with the finished sculpture. The edition number will also be engraved on the sculpture by hand.

This sculpture shows the way the sun and moon connect with each other by setting on the sea. Both can create wonderful reflections on a calm sea with a few rippling waves. This gives a wonderful broken reflective surface for the light to fracture on the water.

I create my sculptures first in clay and sometimes plaster, from my little garden studio where I live in the seaside city of Brighton & Hove, UK. They then go to my families casting studio to be a cold cast in bronze and resin. These sculptures are of the highest quality finish and great care and time is taken to achieve this.


Frequently asked questions

Q. Can it be used as a garden sculpture?
A. Yes the sculpture is completely frost-proof making it suitable for the garden. Due to the almost solid bronze outer layer, it does react with the weather and can, as solid bronze, develop verdigris. This can be cleaned off very gently if required by using a small "wash up" sponge with a rough side to it. This will highlight the metal.

Q. What about after care?
A. Do not use strong detergents or chemical cleaners, as this will destroy the surface. If placed outside is advisable to polish the sculpture with pure bees wax once a year.

Q. Ordering sculptures?
A. Ordering an additional sculpture in bronze or another finish such as aluminium or rusted iron for example has a lead-time of 6 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

Q. Do they weather with age?
A. The sculptures are completely frost-proof making them suitable
for the garden. Due to the almost solid bronze outer layer, they do react with the weather and can, as solid bronze, develop verdigris. This can be cleaned off if required by using a small "wash up" sponge with a rough side to it. This will highlight the metal.

Q. What about aftercare?
A. Do not use strong detergents or chemical cleaners, as this will destroy the patination. It is advisable to polish them with pure bees wax once or twice a year. Brush on the wax from the tin, leave for 2 hours before gently buffing.

Securing the sculpture

The sculptures are made with a threaded rod screwed into the underside and cemented in. This is then bolted onto the slate base if provided with the sculpture.
If the slate base is placed on a flat non porous surface, I recommend securing it with Museum Wax, which will stop it from being knocked off. This is a non permanent solution and the Museum Wax does not dry.
You could also use epoxy resin glue to cement the base in place permanently.

3cm slate bases

I supply 3cm thick slate bases either 30cm, 20cm or 17cm with my sculptures, which have a hole in the middle 1cm and countersunk on the underside by 1.5cm deep (for the nut attachment) by a diameter of 3cm.

Displaying sculptures - pedestals/plinths

Useful information about how to display your sculpture can be found here:
https://www.forging-ahead.co.uk/Plinths.htm

Some photos show my sculptures displayed on slate-affect planters that have been turned upside down and used as pedestals. They are relatively inexpensive and you can find a variety of stone finishes and sizes. They are also easy to move around. One customer placed a tile, matching in size and colour, on top of an upturned planter to display their sculpture, which looked great. https://www.primrose.co.uk/planters
