The usage of bronze is known to date as far back as 7000years ago based on the artifacts found worldwide.
The material, copper, is naturally shiny and pink however the colour varies depending on the chemical compositions of the alloy.
One of the notable properties of bronze is the patina that develops on the surface that protects it from further corrosion. The higher the copper content is, the easier it is to patina and the colour of the patina can vary from blue-green to rich dark brown.
KIKUKAWA provides a wide range of bronze finishes; from those that enhance the beauty of the material to those that recreate the luxurious patina by hand.
