The sculpted bas relief (pronounced bah - like the sound a sheep makes) is considered
the top of the line method for representing the image of an individual. Depending
upon the subject, the bas relief can be raised as much as 1" above the surface.
Our sculptors create a clay model from a photograph you provide. Once the
clay model is complete, we email you an image of the clay for comment or approval.
Once approved, the clay is converted into a resin pattern which is then used in
the casting process. The process is described, with photographs,
Although we have done guaranteed 10 day rush production of plaques containing a
bas relief, we recommend allowing 10+ weeks giving you time to review the sculpting
and request changes, if needed.
Adding a bas relief to bronze plaques adds an estimated
$2000 to the price of a plaque.
