About

A beautiful branch of oak leaves cast in bronze. Made with the ancient lost wax method, a process dating back to the 3rd millennium BC, in which the oak 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.
