Cast-Bronze Furnishings

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

Furnishings and objects made entirely by hand in Natural Bronze using the lost-wax casting technique. Pieces that are one-of-a-kind, just like the forms found in nature from which they are inspired. Meticulous strokes that are true to life, dynamic textures and sinuous contours fused in perfect synergy and eloquence.

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 dries away in furnaces at a temperature of 650° C, leaving the negative it has etched out to be filled with liquid bronze for casting. 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 fused with real leaves, petals and flowers, 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.
