Big Bronze Bean

by Nick Duval-Smith

Just finished this yesterday:

Big Bronze Bean (no.4)

…it’s the big brother of the Baby Bean.

Here they are as a comparison:

P1460803

Originally commissioned about 1999 for Mazagran, the Big Bronze Bean is actually the parent of the Baby Beans (naturally); the little ones started about 2003.

This is the fourth time I’ve made a big one; the first two were supposed to be door handles for Mazagran, but at 5.14 kg each, they turned out to be a bit too weighty for the door. I’ve started numbering them now.
