Figurines offer a unique way to capture a memory. Often people can't afford a life size bronze, but they want to remember a moment or a stage of a child's growth in a sculpture.
Sometimes, awards begin as figurines. Cast in bronze or simulated bronze; they become personal to the giver and the receiver.
Figurines can also be sued to remember a pet or a person who has passed.

Why a figurine?
Clients who commission figurines are looking for that special gift or piece of fine art that is personal—their child, dog, grandchild, or a particular scene that they remember. Bridgette also creates bronze figurines to honor people for their accomplishments. These small statues give you all the action and emotion of a life-size sculpture without the cost. Because the artist can recreate the image as a bronze, limited edition, figurines are an excellent investment for personal gifts. Casting multiples means other family members can add art to their collection.
What is the cost of figurine and How do I begin?
The figurine cost will depend on the number of characters, elements in the sculpture, and the size. Once the client and artist collaborate on these details, she can give the collector a price. A small 6-8 inch sculpture begins at $5,000.
