Patina Options

Each piece is custom finished. Depending on a sculpture’s texture and level of detail, the look of a patina can vary. A slight variation in color from order-to-order is to be expected.

Unless otherwise noted, our reproductions are hand-cast in plaster and reinforced with burlap, fiber strands, and/or metal rods for extra strength.

 

FLAT WHITE: A unified, matte white finish. This is the optimum patina for cast drawing as it allows focus on form.

The dancer's garments blow around her wildly, while her hands are crossed at her chest. Next to her right foot is a seashell, and behind her are rocks. According to the Chrysler Museum of Art, this sculpture depicts American actress and dancer Loïe Fuller (1862-1928). The Museum's sculpture was made in pâte de verre by French glass artist Amalric Walter (1870-1959). The piece may be based on one by another artist, as Walter often worked with artists to create pâte de verre versions of their sculptures. However, the signature or markings on the base of our antique cast are illegible and no references to this work, besides the Chrysler Museum records, appear to exist. Walter created the piece around 1920. Our predecessors, P.P. Caproni and Brother, first offered casts of this work in their 1922 catalog, identifying it only as a Tanagra figurine which is from a group of figurines found in excavating the ancient City of Tanagra in Greece.
