Bloodroot, Small Scale Cast Bronze Botanical Sculpture with Subtle Patina

About

Bloodroot start to bloom before the foliage unfolds in early spring common in the upper Midwest of the United States. After blooming, the leaves unfurl to their full size as seen in this bronze sculpture by Sylvia Beckman. Made with the ancient lost wax method, a process dating back to the 3rd millennium BC, in which the bloodroot leaves are carved in wax then set in clay. The wax is then melted and drained out leaving a cavity into which the molten bronze is poured. Then a patina is applied by hand giving the sculpture its own uniqueness.
