Erotic female bronze figurative portrait, Edition 1 of 12. This exquisitely detailed work features traditional sculpting methodology juxtaposed with modern BDSM themes. The expression of her pleasure is accentuated by the carefully modeled facial expressions, the intricacies of her jeweled adornments, and the allusions entwined within her rope-like braid. This 20" x 16" x 15" work is cast from a water based clay original using the lost wax casting process, and is perfect for any art aficionado to be proudly displayed in your home or personal art gallery. Restraint and Liberation features a mixed patina finish of deep golden hues contrasted with black "leather" accents. Custom size and bronze patina options are available for future editions. Please feel free to contact me with any requests. Patina options can also been seen at Artworks Foundry: https://artworksfoundry.wordpress.com/patina-samples/ Shipping price includes professional packing and shipping by a third party specializing in the transport of high end works of art. For larger size pieces this will include crating of the work. While shipping through a company who specializes in works of art does add cost to the shipping, I only charge buyers the minimum costs based on the weight of the work. In most cases, I incur a percentage of the shipping cost from my own pocket. Shipping is handled in this way as I believe more in the integrity of the art than in a profit. Any questions or special requests for shipping, please contact me directly.

Inspired by the human figure, Claudette Bleijenberg focuses mostly on the strength and fierceness of the female spirit. Through her sculptures, she explores the various meanings and interpretations of beauty. Rather than focusing on physical attributes or external aesthetics, she focuses on the internal and embraces the beauty of raw emotions. Feelings of solitude, rejection, and despair often interweave with the voluptuous curves in her female figures. Primarily working with water-based clay and cast bronze, her over ten years long practice challenges predetermined notions of beauty standards—both masculine and feminine. Additionally, through triumphant celebrations of confidence and uniqueness, she makes statements against societal vanity. Her works reaffirm that the human body and its varied presentations are inherently beautiful. Furthermore, her figurative sculptures highlight the beauty found in the lines and curves of the human body. They also capture the strength and vulnerability found within. By using various mediums and finishes, Bleijenberg’s emotionally charged figures capture how light can enhance a form’s contours and how light and shadow create everchanging angles, shapes, lines, and mass. Works from her Fragmented series, capture the haunting beauty that comes from the vulnerability and intensity of an exposed soul. They highlight the beauty of the tension found in a figure’s curves in protected poses such as arms wrapped around their chest or in the fetal position. Through her Deviant Collection, Bleijenberg explores the intimate connections between individuals both with others and by themselves. Reverent and intimate poses capture unique physical and psychological interactions ubiquitous to the human experience. Preferring to work with live models when possible, Bleijenberg works towards one constant outcome—a final narrative inspired by the model. More specifically, she strives to create organic pieces that capture more than the physical form, sculptures that convey spirit and energy. Furthermore, her sculptures explore the connections between the artist’s hands and the model. And how the relationship between the mind’s eye that allows for a unique experience that feeds the soul. Bleijenberg allows for the story and spirit of the work to be revealed gradually. A measured and careful process allows for the essence of her sculptures to express themselves and to communicate their narrative.
