A gorgeous pear cast in bronze.
This pear is just so delightful. Alice at Pomarius casts direct translations from the original organic specimen into bronze using the lost wax casting technique which sees the pear through various incarnations from wax to clay to bronze. These natural specimens are found from gardens of historical locations and ancient trees across the British Isles. Each casting displays the unique characteristics and details from the piece it was cast from making each bronze individual and exquisite.
This stunning pear is no exception. Its smooth cooling surface has a rich and patina that will increase with age and handling. It is a beautiful piece that will look perfect on its own in a bookcase or on a desk. It will also fit in with a grouping of other bronzes such as apples and figs.
I really like your website -I like its emphasis on the makers, on quality and on objects that seem a bit different and special ( I will definitely explore more!). And it was easy to contact you - and you replied - quickly! All rather marvellous! I would definitely recommend you to friends and colleagues.
I haven't come across you before, though I avidly read interiors magazines, Country Life, RA mags etc......
You are now on my favourites list!
