Our bronze crab garden ornament is available in a range of different coloured patinas. Being cast in bronze, they can be displayed outdoors and inside. Bronze is resistant to corrosion and is therefore ideal for statues or ornaments that come into contact with water. Our bronze crab garden ornaments mirror the body shape, shell, claws and legs of a real crab. At 1kg in weight and 20cm across, they are solid quality ornaments with a real character of their own. They make perfect gifts too!

Our bronze statues and fountains are handmade using the ‘lost wax’ casting process. This is a traditional method for casting metal that dates back to 3000 BC. It’s a long and labour intensive process, but the results are worth it. The lost wax method consistently delivers high quality, detailed pieces. All our statues are finished by experienced craftsmen and glazed using a hot patina and wax. Like all bronze statues cast using the ‘lost wax’ process, our pieces are hollow and normally around 5mm in thickness.
Bronze is a metal alloy with high copper content. It is resistant to corrosion, extremely hardy and very tough. If cared for properly, it will stand the test of time in different weather conditions. Depending on its position and the degree to which it is exposed to the elements, the colour of your bronze statue may change slightly over time. This is perfectly normal for bronze as it oxidizes when exposed to air or other chemicals. You can, however, maintain its original appearance with minimal effort. We recommend cleaning and waxing statues once or twice a year.
