Butler and Peach - Miniature Running Fox in Cold Cast Bronze
Butler and Peach - Miniature Fox in Cold Cast Bronze
This charming miniature fox is made by Butler and Peach in solid bronze using the lost wax method. The bronze fox is running with his tail up, perhaps on the hunt. Foxes have become increasingly prevalent in the suburbs and can often be seen in gardens and even in streets. This small sculpture is 50mm high and encapsulates the stealth and swiftness of a fox.
Each minature bronze by Butler and Peach is presented in an elegant box with pouch and authentication certificate making it a stunning gift. This minature running fox is perfect for anyone who loves British wildlife, particularly foxes. 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.
