Metropolitan Galleries specializes in custom designed and developed bronze sculptures and fountains. Our company was founded in 1993 by Steven Bennett and his vision was for Metropolitan Galleries to be the leading sculpture dealer in the United States. This led to us not only working with bronze sculptures and fountains developed from a reproduction or common sculptures, we began to sketch out and design our own sculpture designs.
This particular Bronze Turtles & Jellyfish Sea Fantasy Sculpture (SRB48659) operates as a sculpture fountain, designed by Metropolitan Galleries and drawn out for production by our fellow artist Dianne Ellis. Dianne has worked with Metropolitan Galleries for over 16 years and holds extreme talent for sketching out drawings and portraiture. We designed this bronze turtles and jellyfish sea fantasy fountain to potentially be used by a nautical park, zoo or aquarium.
Once the drawings were sent to our foundry, a clay and wax mould was created with intricate, hand forged details. After the clay and wax mould hardens, the sculpture mould is then used in the lost wax bronze casting method to develop the final bronze sculpture. This is the most labor intensive and time consuming method of casting bronze sculptures. The next step of development is to apply the finish. The finishes on bronze sculptures are applied by hand and flame. The sculpture has small fish around the base with hand painted details and a durable gloss finish as to keep the original look of the sculpture.
When this Sea Fantasy Sculpture is operating as a fountain, water shoots out from several areas of the sculpture, making it a stunning work of sculpted art. From concept to completion, Metropolitan Galleries can help make your dream sculpture a reality.
