About the Author

Patrick Kipper s artistic reputation with art foundries, sculptors, galleries and museums in the art of bronze patination and fine art conservation is internationally known and respected. Beginning his artistic carrier after a short stint in teaching philosophy on the university level, Patrick began working in the art of patination at an art foundry in Loveland, Colorado, where he developed many patina concepts and artistic techniques that are now used around the world today. Moving up in the ranks at an art foundry and learning all aspects of the fine art casting process, Mr. Kipper left the confines of an art foundry to begin his own career concentrating on bronze sculpture patination and fine art conservation. As a result of over 35 years of experience in this unique fine art of bronze coloration, Mr. Kipper s immense interest in this art form has taken him not only from coast to coast, but has allowed him to travel to many other parts of the world where he has been most fortunate to work with and learn from master patineurs of the classical and contemporary styles. Patrick presently lectures and demonstrates the art of patinas both nationally as well as internationally, at major institutes of art in the academic as well as private sectors. He also maintains his patina and conservation studio in Loveland, Colorado, where on occasion, he still gives workshops that, in the past have drawn people from all over the world.

Not particularly advanced, but good for the collector and many bronze artists. Slightly repetitive, but affirmative of very good bronze finishing/conservation practices in a variety of enviroments.

Maybe not for a course on bronze, but for a new owner of a bronze piece it was very helpful.

I am sure I will be using the information in this book for my statue.

I work for a sculptor who places bronze monuments nation-wide. Often his sculpture is the first major piece of public art in a community, and there are questions about how to care for such a major municipal investment. This book covers everything, and Pat Kipper is considered to be 'the source' for information on patinas and care of same.

Here is a book written in simple understandable terms re the upkeep and restoration of bronze sculpture, indoor and outdoors. Written by someone who has been working in that field for many years, and is able to deliver very correct and precise instruction. This book is a must for art owners and collectors.

This was a very useful read, in particular the way in which Patrick Kipper demistified the maintenance of bronze whilst arming one with the options for makiing personal choices. Delivery of the book from USA to Australia by Amazon was prompt.
