This life-size bronze heron ornament is a unique design exclusive to Adams Bronze. It stands at 85cm and weighs approximately 18kgs. A small bronze base gives it extra stability. We designed our heron to be as functional as it is beautiful, acting as a deterrent to real herons. The casting quality of this bronze heron ornament is clear to see in the detail and relief on its face and feathers. It looks impressive displayed by a pond or stream. It is no surprise that he is one of the most popular garden statues in our Collection.

how this bronze heron ornament is made
Our bronze heron is 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.
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.
