Made by myself Kara Sanches and 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, they 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.
It is mounted on a 20cm x20cm x3cm slate base.

The 'Unwavering' sculpture is inspired by the broken shells washed up on the shore line. The ridges are taken from the scallop shell and the smoother areas are from the tumbling of the waves on the shells. The texture I have chosen for this sculpture helps accentuate this, also creating slight changes to the look of the surface as the light reflects from it.

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 (LSSculptureCasting.com) 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.
The sculpture can be fixed using an extra long bolt to be attached to a pedestal, however this needs to be requested.
However 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.

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
