Bronze Sculptures

The limited-edition bronze sculptures are created by carving the original design out of wood, wax, or clay. Then a mold is made from the carving. Wax is poured into the mold. After the wax hardens, it is dipped repeatedly into a ceramic & plaster solution until another ceramic/plaster mold is created. This mold is then heated until the wax burns out and, while the mold is still hot, molten bronze is poured into it. The resulting rough piece is then cleaned and polished, and a patina is applied. The sculptures are signed and each limited edition is numbered. This labor-intensive process usually takes a few months and the bronze casting steps are shown in my documentary film.
