Butler and Peach - Miniature Kingfisher in Cold Cast Bronze

An elegant miniature kingfisher by Butler and Peach made in solid bronze using the lost wax method. This bronze kingfisher is flying amongst the lilies in its natural habitat. These unmistakable bright blue and organe birds fly over still or slow moving water, fishing from the riverside. This small sculpture is 53mm high and cleverly captures the rapid movement of the kingfisher. These bronze pieces are easy to keep clean, just buff with a soft cloth or brush.

Each minature bronze by Butler and Peach is presented in an elegant box with pouch and authentication certificate making it a stunning gift. This bronze kingfisher is great for those that adore British wildlife and British birds, particularly kingfishers. These bronze pieces are easy to keep clean, just buff with a soft cloth or brush.

The lost-wax process, also called “cire-perdue” is a method of metal casting where a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created using a wax model. Once the mold is made, the wax model is melted and drained away. A hollow core can be created by introducing a heat-proof core that prevents the molten metal from totally filling the mold. The lost-wax method dates from the 3rd millennium BC and has changed very little since then.
