Couple Sculptures: Not Just For Valentine
Couple sculptures would make nice wedding gifts as well as anniversary presents
When you want to celebrate your love, think about something that will express how you feel to be one half of a couple. Any one of these sculptures does that in a way that is really rather special. Linking couples expressing love is always poignant and will provide a daily reminder of it even on days when troubles cast a shadow and you need reminding of why you fell in love in the first place. Of course, I am bias as sculptures are one of my very favorite art forms and these really touch me in a way flowers or chocolates don't - and they last so much longer too.

Abstract Couple Sculptures From Brazil - Superb selection of bronze couple sculptures on granite base by Goga
Novica have done it again in bringing us this wonderful collection of sculptures from Fair Trade artist Goga who lives in Brazil. The artist is an expert at creating a mood with sinuous lines and simple designs that are intensely expressive. She prefer to work with bronze and she signs each piece. You also receive a card about the artist when you buy any of these.
If abstract art is your thing - here is where to start. The simplicity of this piece is actually very appealing. It is called 'The Kiss' and depicts a man just touching his lady with a kiss' while she melts in his arms.

More Beautiful Dancing Couple Sculptures
This is a beautiful little piece from Brazilian artist Emne Al-Haje via a Fair Trade agreement. I love the plain lines and simple expression – it reminds me of ballet dancers, one of my favorite art forms. This is made of bronze.
In contrast to the one above, this sculpture has a much more solid feel to it. It is sturdy and substantial, a bit like an enduring love dare I suggest? The artist who designed this is also from Brazil - Julieta Sathler –
This is another stunning handmade sculpture that just makes me melt – there is something so right about a couple dancing together and artist Anamaria Vieira has captured the moment perfectly. I love the continual loop formed by their joined hands. It reminds me of a symbol of eternity.
You might find this wood sculpture a little more risqu than the others – it is called Dancers Kiss and is by another Brazilian artist (Nyoman Karsa) brought to us by fair trade company Novica. Because each piece is handmade you might find slight differences in appearance.

Why Fair Trade Couple Sculptures?
I try to support Fair Trade companies and products as much as I can so it won’t surprise you that when I went looking for couple sculptures I looked for them first. In case you don’t know, Fair Trade makes sure the native artisans and craftsmen and women who produce these striking couple sculptures get a fair, living wage for the work they do. You probably know that there is an awful lot of people who exploit nations that don’t have the advantages we have here – the news is full of stories of sweat-shops filled with children and adults working for a few pennies a day. Companies who support Fair Trade have all scoped out talented artisans hand-making great sculptures etc. Sometimes they are also involved in setting these people up in small community based businesses, sometimes they buy from townships that have already worked that out for themselves. The impact of supporting local folk is way more than supporting one person: by improving earning potential the effect ripples out to the whole local community. This isn't charity, it is paying good people a good wage for good work. A true win win situation.
