Bronze Axes For Sale
Please visit my new site to see and order my latest work.
The study of the development of copper and then bronze axes provides an interesting window on the ability of the human mind to learn and master a new technological process. Relearning the same processes takes time and is a difficult path to follow.
Today it would be easy to reproduce bronze axes using modern silica casting mediums. However in my work I prefer to discover how the bronze artifacts would have been made at the time. I see my work as a tribute to skills of the early metal workers.
On the page below is a selection of axes which have been cast in methods as near possible to the originals this range will be continually added to.

I am currently exploring bronze mold technology. Above is a test casting of a late bronze age axe, this was the first casting from the mold below before the decoration was carved in the mold.
