Bring character and interest to a pond or outdoor space with this stunning bronze otter statue; a design exclusive to Adams Bronze. Otters are sociable, curious and intelligent creatures and this personality is reflected in the stance and features of this life-size statue. In the early morning or late afternoon sunlight, our otter really comes to life, creating a beautiful point of interest nestled in amongst foliage or grasses.
Standing tall and proud, the otter has superb detail and is finished with a classic deep brown patina. Left to nature and depending on where it’s placed, the bronze otter will begin to oxidise in the air and develop a unique and beautiful weather-worn appearance of its own. Alternatively, to maintain the original finish, just gently clean and wax once or twice a year.
For anyone wanting to add a sense of artistry and interest to an outdoor space, this otter statue is a stunning piece of craftsmanship that’s made to last a lifetime.
Dimensions: L17cm x H46cm x W34cm
how this bronze otter is made
This bronze otter is handmade using the ‘lost wax’ casting process; a traditional method for casting metal that dates back to 3000 BC. It takes several days to make one bronze otter 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.
