Bronzes are forever.
Marke Meyer has specialized in figurative sculpture from wine-glass size to life-size pieces. Every form presents a new challenge to him. The value of your piece is guaranteed by the fact that editions are all limited to twelve or fifteen casts only.
Bronze in it's natural state is a very bright gold. The 'patina' is the colour of the surface of the bronze which the artist chooses. This is done using various chemicals and a blow-torch to create a permanent surface colour.
Marke uses four patinas:
Traditional Bronze (a rich chocolate bronze - click on images below),
Honey-gold ( a rich pale brown with gold highlights)
Dakota marble (a yellowy, orange contemporary pale hue - click on images below. This is exclusive to his work)
Spanish Moss (a creamy white - click on images below. This is exclusive to his work.)
