A little description of creation and casting process:

Creating an original bronze sculpture is quite involved and labor intensive. I start out modeling the original either in clay or another sculpting material from wax to wood.
I sculpt with the human emotion and connected ness in mind. All of my little couples and families should convey that bond. Upon completion a silicone rubber mold is created and covered with plaster for multiple reuses for my larger work. Then liquid hot wax is poured into to mould. When it's hardened if can easily be released from the mold. The unfinished wax copies are carefully reworked with sculpting tools. Once the waxes are to my satisfaction, I send them to the foundry. They attach the spruces, dip them into a ceramic mixture until a shell of about and inch has built up. Then they are adding the waxes in their shell to the kiln. The wax is molten out and the negative is retained in the ceramic shell mold. Then the liquid bronze ( it's super hot) is poured into this second mold. After a cooling time the shell is destroyed.
The cleanup take a while and the rest is sandblasted. The spruces are roughly cut with a plasma cutter. Then I receive the raw bronze back. Some welding might be necessary, metal cutting and chasing, sanding. After the raw bronze is once more sandblasted and carefully cleaned the patina is applied either with heat or the application takes a while to oxidize. Sometimes it takes a few days to get the desired result. Then parts are highlighted by polishing and a protective coating is sprayed on as a last finishing step.
