Bronze Feather

One of a series of new bronze sculptures.

This one stands at 92cm high and has a white marble base.

Lost wax needs a model of the design to be made in wax. The wax model is covered with clay, dried and heated. The wax melts and pours out (is lost) through flues, leaving a cavity the same as the original wax. Molten bronze is poured into the cavity completely filling the space. The clay is broken and a bronze model remains ready for sanding, chasing and finishing.
