Maria and the Seeds small is petite version of an earlier work with the same title. This sculpture is not a reproduction of his first Maria, it’s remarkably similar but is a variation of the original. This limited edition bronze sculpture by Nano Lopez was inspired by the abundance and protection given from Mother Earth. This warm colorful fairy will bring you abundance and a lifetime of joy as you view her. This master work was created by hand in Walla Walla, Washington by one of our countries most unusual and talent artists. His vision and unique collection is something fresh, the art community needed.

Would you like to meet Nano Lopez and tour his foundry and studio in Walla Walla, Washington? Call and ask how you can be on our VIP list and attend our 7th annual, 2017 Nano Lopez Studio Tour. This event includes a two night stay at The Marcus Whitman Historic Hotel, two dinners with the Lopez family and Queen Team, a tour of his foundry, private gallery and studio, and two wonderful farm fresh breakfasts at the Marc located in the Marcus Whitman and our personal favorite activity, searching for Nano Fossils, see image below.

In the lost wax method of casing bronze sculptures, a ceramic mold is created to pour the 2000 degree molten bronze into. After the sculpture has cooled the harden ceramic shell is removed (broken away) revealing the ruff unfinished sculpture. These fractured ceramic treasures are the remnants or fossils that get discarded. As we sift through the rubble we find countless pieces, revealing the impressions from the bronze. These broken, discard and unwanted fossils have no value to the artist or foundry worker, but we still enjoy picking out our favorite each year.

This pile of white rubble is what we call foundry fossils. In the lost wax method of casting bronze sculptures, one of the steps is breaking off and removing the ceramic mold. These fractures pieces of porcelain is the end result. We like to rummage through the piles to find foundry fossils. They reveal the reverse texture of whatever sculpture is being made.
