Cast-bronze Furniture

"The power and mutability of bronze emits a constant energy
to create new forms." 

Osanna's collections of cast-bronze furniture and interior decor take their inspiration from forms found in nature. All of her creations are fused in bronze using the lost-wax casting process, one of the oldest known metal-forming techniques dating back 6,000 years. This ancient process uses a negative form in which molten metal is cast. An initial wax sculpture is used to create a plaster mould. The wax model, which Osanna kneads and shapes by hand, is the defining element of her creations.

Bookshelves and chandeliers formed of bamboo, tables and consoles cast with intricate reliefs of leaves, along with candleholders and tableware that are all entirely made by hand and characterized by her signature textures and organic material. Collecting elements found in nature and transforming them into contemporary and functional art is Osanna’s passion.
