Waxed bronze surfaces will always dull a little in time. To return the original lustre, gently buff with a clean cotton cloth.
Figs were some of the very first varieties of fruit cast as part of the of the Pomarius project and are still a fruit returned to again and again when working with particular the gardens. ’Turkish figs’ describe those that are generally fuller with shorter ‘necks’.
This particular verdigris finish is achieved by heating the finished sculpture and adding chemicals whilst still hot. It is then finished with natural beeswax. The raw bronze patina often reveals more of the metal’s natural colouring, particularly on the high points of a texture – particularly evident on the seeds exposed on a fig sliced in two.
As every Pomarius work is unique, please only use the images and dimensions here as a guide. Some figs are cast with more wrinkles than others. Do specify which finish you would prefer or a particular quality in the final fruit cast if you are commissioning a work.
