A pair of stylized crested cranes dancing during mating season are shown in bronze and brass metal. They normally reflect each other as in a mirror image and will do so until one of them concedes during courtship. Hot Patina Finish - Our artists heat the brass surface with blow torches and apply secret formulations of chemicals that react to the metal using various techniques, one layer at a time. Several coats of hand waxing result in a vibrant, deep, layered finish with complex subtleties that no other finishing method can achieve. Due to this hand crafted process each piece is unique with its own colors. Our Gallery’s hot patina finish is beautiful to behold and is much sought after.
