Hand cast in bronze the Danby lamp is available in either brushed gold bronze or dark bronze. They are made using the lost wax technique a process used for millennia and still used by the craftsmen of today. Firstly the design is modelled in wax before being wrapped in clay and dried. Once ready it is heated allowing the wax to pour out, hence the name ‘lost wax’! The cavity left in the clay is then filled by molten bronze. Later the mould is broken revealing the bronze casting. Then a process of sanding, chasing and finishing begins to create the final article. A gentle patina will develop over time defining these as true heirlooms.
