Bronze - Patina

A decade after creating a Colorado Yule Marble carving, I was moved to create a bronze version. The marble piece was a  direct carving created for a friend. Neither realizing nor intentional, the original piece depicted my friend's marriage relationship. Two people, with joined hearts, having different views of life, causing rough times, but always together, solid as a rock.

In my late 30's I created this piece in clay. Some thirty years later I decided to cast her as a bronze, using the lost-wax process.

Only a few years ago, by chance, a woman in my community saw this bronze. Pleased, she said she was the model. Now we are good friends and neighbors!

Bronze is an alloy consisting primarily of copper, commonly with about 12-12.5% tin and often with the addition of other metals (such as aluminum, manganese, nickel or zinc)and sometimes non-metals or metalloids such as arsenic, phosphorus or siliconWikipedia

Lost-wax casting is the process by which a duplicate metal sculpture is cast from an original sculpture. Intricate works can be achieved by this method. The oldest known example of this technique is a 6,000-year old amulet from Indus valley civilization. Wikipedia

Bronze - Patina

As I was modeling a clay maquette for a piece of stone, the clay evolved into this playful, reserved, modest, young woman; not my intention. Since this is not my carving style, she became a bronze.

This is a whimsical look at the art of permanent hair removal, known as electrology or electrolysis.

The first few I made were donations to the American Electrology Association. Since then I have been commissioned for private sales.  I have also created and sold small necklace versions in bronze & silver.

WHAT FUN!
