Mouse on Apple 2 by Michael Simpson
World of Bronze by Richard Cooper & Company
A moment in time from the imagination of Michael Simpson. The mouse pauses, sniffs the air, and prepares to tuck in again. In this appealing composition the apple has been patinated a soft red to complement the chestnut brown of the bronze.

This sweet mouse is made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The design is finished by the art of patination where various acids are applied to the surface of the bronze and heat applied to create a deep rich brown and red patina. Then bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.
