I finally have BRONZE! Real, fire-kissed, bronze, Rattlesnake Door handles. Here are some more pictures of the handle, and (hopefully) answers to several questions. I had two bronzes cast, one sold immediately and shipped today; I have one left, but given time, I can have more cast that are just as beautiful, I just need to give the foundry several weeks (8-12+.)  To purchase either a bronze or “cold-cast” resin handle, please email me or PM me through Facebook (JL Cook, sculptor). I do not have retail capabilities yet, but I will work with PayPal, money order or check. The bronze is currently $12oo USD plus shipping and the “cold-cast” is $200 USD plus shipping. The sculpture for both is identical, only the final material is different. “Cold-cast” bronze is a resin filled with bronze powder; it is durable and useable for indoor, but will not be suitable for exterior use. Bronze (lost-wax) is real, foundry-cast metal and can withstand constant, daily use; it is practically impervious to most elements other than a volcanic eruption (think Pompeii) or dragon fire. Both have bolts either welded or embedded into the back for mounting through a door.

I do not currently have other items for sale, but I AM working on that. Yes, I do take commissions. All of the previous snake items are sold or retired. I would like to have a smaller version of the Emerald Tree Boa door knocker, a Rattlesnake Tail door knocker (very similar to the drawer pull,) and a belt buckle by the end of summer. I hope I’ve answered some questions and you enjoy the photos.

Thank you for all your kind words so far, I truly appreciate it!
