This blog is for East Central University sculpture students to interact with one another. Students will post images of their classwork and discuss / critique the work on an ongoing basis throughout the semester.
How is this done?
What inspired him to make the mice? I really like them.
lost-wax bronze casting.a piece is made in clay. Then a plaster mold is taken from the clay model. Hot wax is cast into the mold. The wax pieces are vented and then dipped in a series of ceramic slurries with sand to create a hard shell. The shelled pieces are then put into a kiln to harden the shell and the melt the wax out. This leaves a hollow ceramic shell. Molten bronze is then poured into the shell. Finally, the shell is removed to reveal the bronze sculpture.
and I don't know why the mice are used as a motif. That will be a good question when you ask him in November
