Custom Busts

As with the custom sculptures, the custom busts can be either in bronze or marble. We can create a bust from your portrait picture, or a bust that you have seen in a museum that you’d like replicated. We can make a life-size, reduction or an enlargement of a famous museum bust.Just let us know the size you would like it made and we will sculpt it for you. Here are some examples of custom bronze and marble busts we have created for our customers:

1 Pericles and Ajax bronze busts

These two busts of Pericles and Ajax are reductions of museum originals which we created in lost wax bronze for a customer in Australia. The museum originals are in marble and larger in size. These reproductions were first sculpted in clay and reduced in size proportionate to the originals. Afterward a mold is made and finally the lost wax bronze castings were made.
