The elusive red squirrel is a rare sight in the UK, but thanks to a national drive to boost the dwindling population, numbers are finally increasing. This little squirrel is made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. It is finished by the art of patination where various acids are applied to the surface of the bronze and heat applied to create a deep rich brown patina. The bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.
