Ruby is an elegant figurative bronze sculpture by Nando Kallweit.
Modelled on modern youthful postures but with a nod to the importance of heritage through the stylised Egyptian-influenced head. A lovely piece on its own or with a group of friends.
Nando produces each piece using the lost wax process. He makes a wax model, lowers it into wet ceramic, allows the ceramic to dry, bakes the ceramic so that the wax melts and the mould is bone dry then pours his molten bronze into the cavity.
Each piece in the series is unique and named. Nando also hammers his mark into the base.
