How it is made:
Each begins life as 2-D concept art designed by talented artists in Northern California. Master sculptors breathe life into the artwork with weeks of hand sculpting in modeling clay.
Each part is cast using either the lost wax or sand casting method. Artisans take the various cast parts and carefully weld them together. After up to several days of welding, sanding, and polishing, the metal sculpture takes its final form and the patina artists then have their turn.
