About Bronze and Fiberglass Sculptures
Gillie and Marc love creating beautiful sculptures - pieces of art that take up space in your home to make it more vibrant, interesting, and personal. With every piece created with love, the artists allow you to take home a little bit of the passion they have inside them, whether that be for one of the beautiful animals in the world they strive to save, or their iconic lovers, Rabbitwoman and Dogman. Gillie and Marc work in a range of materials for their sculptures including bronze, resin, fiberglass, stainless steel and ceramic.
Gillie and Marc have become extremely experienced at working in bronze, their favorite material. Their public sculptures, all expertly sculpted in bronze, can be seen around the globe and are beloved by locals and tourist alike. But the artists don’t only create monumental bronze sculptures. They also scale them down so you can take one of their beautiful bronze masterpieces home with you.
The artists love working in bronze for many reasons. Bronze is a very hardy material and will last forever. The material has been used for millennia, with some 2500 year-old artworks still in existence today. Bronze is also a non-polluting and very sustainable material to use. It is an alloy made primarily from two chemical elements found naturally in the environment - copper and tin. These two natural elements are mined from ore and are found in many day to day items such as wiring and plumbing. Copper is also 100% recyclable, with around 40% of the world’s supply coming from recycled products. Silicon bronze contains no lead or any other elements that are harmful to either humans or the environment. Finally, bronze is very easy to clean, allowing you to enjoy your precious sculpture with minimal upkeep.
As experts in coloring bronze, Gillie and Marc enjoy experimenting with their sculptures, adding a splash of color to brighten the work, making it even more unique. This technique is very difficult and is rarely practiced, making these Gillie and Marc sculptures even more precious.
For the most part, fiberglass sculptures are the same as resin sculptures.
Made from the threads of glass, fiberglass is created by forcing molten glass through a sieve that spins it into threads.
Fiberglass is light-weight and easy to transport. It is also very strong - so strong, in fact, that it is the same material used to make boats.
When creating beautiful sculptures in fiberglass and resin, Gillie and Marc like to have a bit of fun. Sometimes works are crafted in one bold color, sometimes they are splashed with many colors, and sometimes they are even transparent, Gillie and Marc resin and fiberglass sculptures are not only beautiful, but which are guaranteed to make you smile.
For every purchase of a fiberglass or bronze sculpture you will receive a certificate of authenticity, titled, signed, dated and editioned by the artists.
