Bronze Grand Sphere
Each Bronze sculpture is created by hand weaving with wax lengths in Rachel's trademark woven swirls to create the spherical sculpture. The wax sculpture is then transported to Pangolin Editions foundry to be transformed into bronze using the lost wax technique.
This new sculpture is totally unique and the first of its kind, it can't be replicated or moulded ensuring each piece is a one off. The very first Bronze Grand Sphere was showcased at the 100th Chelsea Flower show before being donated to the birth place of the Industrial Revolution, the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site in Derbyshire.
The Bronze sphere is now available to commission in three sizes and a range of colours, simply select your size and contact Rachel with your colour preference.
