Lost Wax Method - sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue or the Latin, cera perduta is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artists sculpture.

In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.



Demetre Chiparus (1886-1947) is regarded as the master of Art Deco bronzes. His sculptures highlight the timeless beauty of the dancers and fashion of the period. Whether his subjects are femmes fatales or demure heroines, all of Chiparus's women possess the idealized attitudes of the dance and the erotic posturings of the music hall. Their bodies are lithe and active, glorying in freedom, knowing no constraints. Their costumes reflect the elegant fashions of the day.
