Michael works in both cold-cast and foundry bronze.
Cold-cast bronze is made from bronze suspended in resin, and strengthened with fiber-glass. In most cases the “patination” (colour and finish) is the same as that of foundry bronze. Cold-cast bronze is suitable for both inside and outdoor locations and with care, will last a lifetime.
Foundry bronze is hot poured bronze using traditional methods. It is very strong and is recommended for more delicate works. There is a wider range of “patination” and the choices of finish can be more subtle. Foundry bronze will last not only for a lifetime, but for generations to come.
