The Bronzing Artist


Bronzing is a fascinating worth going to a foundry and taking a free tour. Visiting will give you an actual virtual tour of the bronzing process. I create my pieces in clay beginning with a wire armature or “skeleton.” This structurally holds the piece together while the clay is being formed. Wax can also be used to create the piece. When done , off to the foundry it goes. A mold is made of the piece, a ceramic cast is made from the mold, and into this is poured the bronze. When cooled the cast is broken off and there is the original, now in bronze.
