Enjoy the creative process of Bronze sculptures. This is a journal of my personal experience making sculptures out of bronze. Many people are unfamilar with the process, it takes many steps and man hours to create such a piece. "Did you make that with your hands?!" Yes, that was a question I was asked. Growing up in an age of non-technology had its rewards, knowing how to use your hands.

Picture Tell Thousand Words
Rough first thought for piece
Pie tin makes great base
The pieces are complete, time to assemble them in a way that can give
the welders an idea on how to put the pieces together. I have learned to draw
everything out, explain everything over and over again. Remember one person’s
yellow is another person’s Cadmium Yellow Light, same with sculpture, draw out
the design so everyone gets the “picture” of what you want.
That being said, I took cardboard, wire, paper, glue and a pie tin
with Duct tape to create a very rough 3D image of the sculpture. It give me a
visual guide, to see if I am on track. It gives the foundry an idea on how I
would like the project to look. Which is turn, gives the people that are doing
the welding ideas to help me improve the position of all the parts.
