A Day at the Denver Arts Festival

The weeks are flashing by and I’m going to be participating in another show tomorrow. Amazing how time does fly.

But before heading out I wanted to look back and share some experiences at the recent Denver Arts Festival. I’ve done this show for many years starting when it was located at the Denver Pavilions on the 16th street mall and […]

Scenes from Belleville

One of the delightful aspects of participating in art shows is engaging with the folks attending by choice, mishap, or as their employment. At the Art On The Square show in Belleville, IL (May 19–21) I had the opportunity to experience all that plus some.

I write this to give insight into some slightly different aspects of the artist experience when […]

The Joys of the Artist’s Off-Season

As another show season starts I thought I’d reflect on what it means to an artist to have some down time. I’m lucky in that I typically have several months off between my last show of one year and the first of the next.

Not every artist has that luxury. I know several who do a show practically every weekend. […]

The Lost Wax Bronze Casting Process Explained

The “Lost Wax” bronze casting method dates back centuries to ancient Chinese, Indian, Greek and Egyptian cultures. And though the technique has evolved, it’s still much like it was in ancient times.

Bronze is the most popular metal for cast sculptures due to its strength, lack of brittleness, and expanding/shrinking properties throughout the casting process. Bronze alloys also allow for very detailed […]

So What Is a Limited-Edition Bronze?

I find that even collectors of bronze can be unclear about how editions work. Here I’ll pull back the curtain on the bronze industry a little and give you some key vocabulary to understand what you’re seeing here and at other sculpture sites.

You’ll find a nice video on the process of how bronze sculptures are made right here, so I […]
