By Your SideYenny Cocq

This loving bronze couple sits delicately on a shelf or rock (a simple base of New Mexico travertine is included, or I am sure you can find a pretty rock on your next romantic walk). As they are not mounted, they can be moved around and you can play dolls to communicate the "mood" of the day. You could use anything as a base or seat for them. The patina and the finish varies a bit, so keep in mind that they are very unique works of art and there are no two alike. If you like them for yourself, I am delighted. If you want to give them as a wedding, anniversary or "any occasion" gift the receiving couple can each have their own, as they are two small individual sculptures. These sculptures are part of an open edition. I re-use the same molds in the creation process. However, each piece is a handmade original--no figure is exactly the same.

Yenny Cocq is a figurative sculptor who works in bronze. She begins each piece by working in oil clay so she can create the form of the figure. She continues by creating a mold to produce wax versions of the sculpture, which she can alter further to develop the emotion of her figures. The final step is to have the artwork cast in bronze at a foundry. Yenny’s figures create modular families–adults, children, and pets may be mixed and matched to accurately reflect loving familial relationships.
