Benediction - Bronze Sculpture By James Christensen

By James Christensen

Benediction by James Christensen Bronze

The bronze sculptures of James C. Christensen are as coveted by collectors as his fine art limited edition canvases and prints. Meticulously crafted and superbly detailed, these sculptures are sure to grace the lives of collectors for generations to come.

The Art of Bronze Making From concept to completion, it takes several months to create a bronze edition. Working from original drawings, James and master craftsmen model the sculpture in clay using traditional methods. Melted wax is poured into a silicone mold using the centuries-old "lost wax" casting method. This wax casting is dipped in slurry, a silica compound, and is heated until the liquid wax burns out, leaving a rigid, heat-resistant "master" mold. Molten bronze is poured into the slurry mold and is carefully removed after cooling. Hours of hand-sanding clean and polish the bronze, and a variety of chemical patinas are applied to give the finished work subtle coloration's.

“I have always used the floating fish to symbolize the presence of life’s magic,” says Jim Christensen. “Occasionally, I’ve wondered whether these little guys are bringing the magic with them or are the result of it. Who is the recipient of the benediction? Is the angel blessing the fish, or in another way, is the fish blessing the angel … blessing her by its presence? The Latin on the ring, Beatus est Pisciculus, translates as “Blessed is the Little Fish.” Regardless of which came first, the angel or the fish, it’s important to stop and take the time to be thankful for the magic in our lives.”
