About the Sculpture

This little bronze wren sculpture has a multi-colour patination. Patination is a traditional heat and chemical process that colours the surface of the bronze, and each piece is patinated individually by hand. This sculpture is cast as a solid bronze (any larger than this and bronzes are generally cast hollow). This makes it satisfyingly weighty in the hand.   You can see more information on how a bronze sculpture is produced on the “About the Sculpture” page.  You can see another of Bill’s wren sculptures here.

Inspiration

“One of my favourite subjects for bird sculpture. Wrens always impress me with their feisty demeanour and strident song. I had an excellent opportunity to study wrens close up when a family of them chose to nest in an abandoned swallow nest in an outbuilding next to my studio.”
