Why Choose Bronze?
We’re so glad you asked.
There are a number of benefits to choosing bronze for your statuary. Chief among these is its ease of maintenance. Bronze ages gracefully, the brown, burgundy or green patina giving it a beautiful, antique look.
Additionally, due to the lost-wax casting method that we use, any bronze statues that you commission will have exquisite levels of detail. Since bronze hardens rapidly, these details will withstand environmental conditions, indoors or out.
Types of Bronze Statues
When searching for bronze statues for your business, you’ll find two main types on the market: bonded bronze and molten bronze.
Bonded bronze is a misnomer, as the statues made from this material contain little actual bronze. These statues instead consist of cheap epoxies, resins, polyesters, and bronze powder. They are lightweight statues that don’t last well outdoors.
We pride ourselves on offering only molten bronze statues. Molten bronze statues are created using ancient methods of pouring molten bronze into a carefully sculpted rubber or clay mold and leaving it to cool. This method preserves greater detail and is overall more authentic and durable than bonded bronze.
As anyone who’s ever sat on a bonded leather couch or eaten something with artificial sweetener will tell you: There’s just no substitute for the real thing.
Choosing a Design for Your Custom Bronze Statue
So, you’ve decided to invest in a bronze statue for your business. Now you just need to choose a design that will make the greatest impact to your clients or customers. Below are a few of the most popular choices for businesses looking to make an impression.
If you want to honor your company’s origins and add a touch of class to your business, you can’t go wrong with a statue of your founder. Life-size statues of business founders show potential clients that you are proud of where you came from and imbue your establishment with a sense of history and reliability. This choice may be especially meaningful if the founder has recently passed away.
What does your business stand for? Do you want to prioritize unity and togetherness? Do you reach out to help others, or offer a hand to those in need? If you choose a design that conveys those values, it can instill a sense of trust in your customers.
Consider Your Location and Audience
Your biggest consideration when choosing a bronze statue for your business should be the location and your desired audience. Where will your statue be? Who is it for?
If you want your statue to be displayed in front of your business, serving as a landmark to passersby, you should select a large or elaborate piece. If you’re aiming for a subtle, understated welcome, a minimally designed bronze statue in the lobby might better suit your needs.
Don’t Neglect Your Personal Taste
While viewer impact is your main priority, your identity and tastes are also important signifiers to your guests and clients, indicating what to expect from you and your business.
Whether you prefer classical sculptures, or tend toward pieces that are abstract and minimalist, make sure to choose a statue that you will be proud to display. This is your investment, and should communicate your brand and values.
