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 sculpting and a vibrant and colorful color and finish.
And then there’s durability: It’s been said?that bronze sculpture will be the longest-lasting of all human creations. I find that humbling.
This page gives you a video tour through my process and the creation of my animal sculpture series “Desk Buddies.” I hope you enjoy!
