Edge Sculpture Baby Chimpanzee "Hear no Evil"
Each sculpt has been originally sculpted from clay, which allows the sculptor to be freer, giving the pieces that dynamic and organic feel, stylised by Edge Sculpture. The finished clay sculpt 'masters' are then taken to be moulded, and each subsequent piece has been carefully hand cast from this mould using ceramic polystone, which allows for the faithful reproduction of detail and texture applied to the original sculpt. The finishing touch is the skilful application of hand painting and finishing, which brings the sculpt to life. The end result is a centre piece and talking point for anyone's living room!
Matt Buckley is the Creative Director and designer of the stunning Edge Sculpture range.
He initially sketches then sculpts each new piece out of clay. Each design perfectly blends structure with strength to produce a prototype full of charm and character.
This original sculpture is then used to create a rubber mould. Marble resin is poured into the mould which is then lowered into a vacuum chamber to remove unwanted air bubbles.
Once cured and properly hardened, the cast is carefully removed to reveal the first white sample.
After unwanted mould lines have been removed, the sample is levelled and sand-blasted in order to give it a slight key.
It is then painted to produce a master against which all future production sculptures will be compared.
A masterpiece has been created.
