Brass Baron Splashing Duck Fountain

Brass Baron has the largest selection of brass fountains and statuary in the United States. All of the metallic Brass Baron statuary and fountains are made of the highest quality solid brass. The brass used in these pieces is 100% recycled, making them a good environmental choice, and these fountains are fully recyclable should you ever need to do that. These pieces will never rust, and are not adversely affected by weather or salt spray. Moisture gives the brass its beautiful verdigris patina. Leaving your Brass Baron fountain or statue to weather outdoors will only enhance its appearance. Each piece comes with a generous two-year warranty from Brass Baron.

The exceptional detail inherent in Brass Baron sculptures is created as each piece is cast using the lost wax method, which originated in ancient Egypt, and was later refined by the Romans and the artists of the Parisienne Renaissance. After a plaster or resin mold is created from an original sculpture, hot wax is poured into the mold. When the wax hardens, all the finest details are captured in the wax. The wax impression is then encased in a refined clay, which is fired in a kiln and the wax melts away and is "lost". The void created by the melted wax is then filled with molten brass, which is identical to the wax impression that it replaces. Once the brass cools, the clay mold surrounding the brass cast sculpture is removed. This detailed replica is finished by hand, buffing, polishing and patinizing it to give the piece its verdigris (green-grey) or bronze final finish. The labor intensive lost wax casting process produces unique fountains and sculptures with exceptionally fine detail and lasting durability. Each piece is cast and finished by Brass Baron artisans one at a time, just as the originals were. Variations in color and finish reflect the individual craftsmanship of each piece.
