  Patina Artisan

The final stages of a project are critical. The finish is always a product of how well all the previous processes are done, and we strive to nail the artist’s vision in this final stage. We offer a library of patinas and surface treatments to our artists, and many of these become personalized to the artist’s vision.

I love challenges. We're never doing the same thing.

When we produce artworks at Bollinger Atelier, we design them to withstand the elements. As a preventative measure, we provide our clients with care instructions for each work we produce. Over time, however, all works require maintenance to mitigate the effects of time and environment, whether natural or accidental. 

When works require it, we offer comprehensive restoration services, including refinishing, repairs, and technical support. Please contact Arizona Bronze for quotes on new projects.
