8" x 5", pencil, watercolour and pen & ink
These sculptures were rescued from my parents house when Gary and I helped them pack for their big move out of town. I had made them back as a student in my Mould Making and Foundry class at OCA. The green sculpture on the left was the plaster cast for making the mould for the bronze cast on the right.
The first part of the process was to sculpt in clay. From that the plaster cast was made, which was then used to create the cast which the molten bronze was poured in to and allowed to cool before cracking open with a large mallet. Both sculptures measure about 11" in height. The bronze one must weigh about 8 pounds.
