Our squirrel bronze pen stand has a tall tail indeed
And what a telltale tail it is! Our Bronze Squirrel pen stand and pen holder features our furry friend perched atop a leaf, offering you an acorn to show your mutual friendship -- and you can reciprocate by letting him borrow your favorite pen, which he holds upright with his tail. This unique pen stand is created using the time-honored lost wax method to render its remarkable detail.
Lost wax, paradise found
The artist first creates a model in clay which is covered with silicone rubber to create a negative 3-D image. The hollow silicone is filled with liquid wax, then carefully bathed in ceramic. Molten metal is poured inside, dissolving the wax. After the metal cools, the mold is broken away to reveal the beauty beneath.
