Towel Ring Lodgepole Lite - Bark Base Basic Patina Description
Please refer to the secondary image to view selected finish color.The 3/8" pine branch used for this solid bronze Towel Ring is the same one we use on our regular rings and the pine bark mounting base is cast as part of the piece. Although it appears "finer" and weighs 50% less, it will still hold a hand or small bath towel in rustic splendor. The bronze ring, originally formed from a thin pine branch, is mounted through a hole in a small pine cone-tipped "stub" cast as part of the moderately textured pine bark base. The base attaches to the wall with one tiny, fully open open and one small closed Lodgepole pine cone - no unsightly screws. Approximate dimensions and weight. Basic Patina.Timber Bronze is a company that prides itself on the dedication that goes in to making each piece. The process begins by casting a shape in wax and loading it onto a wax "tree". That tree is then sent to one of the world-class bronze foundries located about 25 miles from the Timber Bronze workshop location. This foundry puts the tree through a slurry process that takes about 8 days, starting with a slurry that is about the consistency of a milkshake and then working up to one that is fairly granular. Once the slurry sets on the tree, the tree is put into a furnace that melts the wax out. Bronze, which is a combination of tin and copper, is then poured into the resulting void and left to sit until cool enough to break it out of the hardened slurry. The items are then cut off of the tree and sent back to the workshop. The material is cleaned up and then put through the patina process, of which two finishes are offered. One is basic which leaves the item with soft, brassy tones, and the other is traditional, which leaves the item with soft coppery tones.
