The beauty and color of nature has been captured in this carefully crafted Imperial Butterfy Square vase. A varied hue of butterflies is seen hovering among flowers cast in brass.

Imperial Finish is a process designed to enhance the fine craftsmanship of this piece. Each work is meticulously sculpted by hand, cast in solid brass, and finished in a unique new patina of color. The piece endures a time-consuming lost-wax technique to reveal unparalleled detail. Enjoy this beautiful artwork for a lifetime.

The origins of lost wax casting process are shrouded in antiquity. It has been used for thousands of years to create metal objects that could not be produced in any other way (such as fine jewelry) because of their complexity. Each lost wax piece begins life as a finely hand-carved wax sculpture. After the model is touched up, vents and gates to channel the liquid metal into the mold are added. The model is then surrounded by a material that will withstand high temperature when baked. Following hours of baking, when the material has set and cooled, molten metal is carefully poured into the mold, melting the wax in the process (hence the lost wax designation). This process, once finally cooled, reveals the painstakingly created details of the original wax sculpture.

Due to its high cost and complexity, the lost wax method is a fading art form. This technique is proudly used to forge a breathtaking piece that will last for many generations.
