bronze sculptures are cast using the lost wax process. The
ancient process requires many steps and is very labor intensive.
Each piece moves from the clay or plasticine with which
I work, through the mold and wax phases to the pouring of
the molten bronze, and the painstaking grinding and finishing
to the final application of the patina. I retain the mold
of the original bronzes so I am able to reproduce additional
sculptures upon request.
a sense I am still beside the Clay Pond, in the middle of
the Great Swamp. I never did find my way out. I still grope
through the bog of my existence and follow my hands towards
the blue clay of hope and creativity. I am living on the
exhilaration of those boyhood times, when the days were
sunny, blue clay was within a long arm’s reach and
the created object was filled with iconic power and wonder.
