The Mallon Foundry

Fiacc the Raven Bronze Raven sculpture made in Britain by Mallon Foundry for AUTHOR

Regular price £1,690 Sale

A limited edition of twelve Bronzes cast in Northern Ireland by The Mallon Foundry.

The sculpture is cast in bronze using the primitive ‘Cire Perdu’ technique, in which the model goes through a series of incarnations, from clay, to wax, to ceramic and finally to bronze. The bronze is treated to achieve the amazingly deep colour, and coated with a layer of the maker’s very own beeswax.

The sculpture is discreetly stamped with its number, enabling your ownership of this very special piece to be recorded in the maker’s Owners Register.

  • TO TREASURE FOR EVER

  • In his first year Fiacc requires nothing more than a light tickle with a soft duster.
    The colour will continue to deepen. To keep the current patination you can re-apply a layer of any natural paste wax, once a year, gently buffing afterwards with a soft cloth. Should Fiacc become very dirty he can be cleaned using a little mild soap and water, rinsing well and drying completely before reapplying wax. Fiacc flies in with his own little jar of beeswax.
Why we love this product

Whether or not you are familiar with the legend, or other stories about ravens, the character of this bird is beautifully and explicitly captured in this bronze.

His stance and features are so expressive, that he really does seem to be watching us from his perch.

As well as being irresistibly eye-catching, Fiacc makes a great conversation piece, especially when you divulge the name and retell the story. The little raven has amazing tactile qualities - surprisingly weighty and cool to the touch.

It is important to us at Author that traditional craft skills such as the ?Cire Perdue? technique used to create Fiacc are not lost. Being able to continue through Fiacc both the oral tradition of passing down legends and the ancient metalworking skills gives us a grounding and reassuring connection to the past.
