Romantic bronze sculpture – Sit Next to Me
Sit Next to me is a romantic bronze sculpture of sitting figurines. The traditional anniversary gift for the 8th anniversary and also the 32th is bronze. The modern Anniversary gift as Wikipedia describes is a gift of Bronze in the 19th year. This is by no means to be adhered to and I think it is a great gift for any anniversary, birthday, christmas or a romantic wedding gift. Bronze will last forever!
Sit Next to Me is one of my earlier editions of romantic bronze sculpture with an unusual teal patina. The first was cast in a small edition of only 10. Then the shape changed a little and the new mold was taken of that wax original. I have just a few left of that second edition of 45. The price of this sculpture has not changed and is still $980 with the stone base. The unique dark turquoise, green patina was an experiment as our wedding color was teal. I only made a few in this color.
The sculptures themselves as sitting figurines are 7″ pair (from head to toe) they are permanently mounted on a rustic travertine base that I source from a quarry in Belen, New Mexico. All my stone bases are hand selected and no two are alike.
Dimensions: Total height including stone base is 8.5″, 5.5 wide, 4″ deep
A signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity (COA) is accompanying this original bronze sculpture. The sculptures are signed and numbered on the bottoms of their seat. As they are mounted that won’t be visible, therefore you will receive an image with the signature and the number of the edition for your records.
The bronze casting process is in detail described under the About section. It is an elaborate and labor intensive process that is still the same as it has been since the Bronze Age.

The sculptures are created using traditional lost wax casting. Only the highest fine art quality bronze is used. The figures are individually finished in either classic black patina with polished highlights, brushed bronze, or silver-plated bronze.

The statues come in miniature size for the shelf, in table top size, or in various sizes for larger spaces or the sculpture garden. For example, the measurement of the small figures from head to toe without the base is 4.5” for the figures (Caress, The Two of Us). The regular small base measures approx. 4 x 3 x 2″. Horizontal or vertical placement depends on the figures chosen.
