Featured Bronze Castings

On the Workbench

Wonder Woman Mirror

Gal Gadot 3

 

I have now cast and assembled my sculpture of Wonder Woman that I had created in wax almost a year ago. I used the original wax model I had made. As this wax model is now ‘lost’, as part of the lost wax casting process, I have no plans to do another. This piece will […]

Brass Monkey

Brass Monkey 1

 

I haven’t posted new work for quite some time. But, that doesn’t mean that I have been inactive. I have completed my Raquel Gothic sculpture and my Wonder Woman sculpture. They are currently waiting for me to cut some stone for their bases. I have also been finishing some miscellaneous needs related to my castings, […]

Raquel Gothic

Raquel Gothic 3

 

I have now managed to complete the soldering and assembly of this piece. This is one of the largest works that I have competed, tipping the scale at 1280 grams of bronze. If I complete the sand casting of the clock base it will most definitely be the largest work I have made. I had […]

Raquel Gothic

Raquel Gothic 2

 

Some progress has been made on this fairy. The first picture shows the cast for the full body. This was cast with my natural bronze alloy of copper and tin and as the scale shows, weighs 522 grams. One difficulty with large castings is that it takes a lot of heat to solder or braze […]

Raquel Gothic 1

 

It’s been a while since I posted any new work. However, I have started a new casting of a gothic steampunk type of fairy that I think will be quite delightful. I have already cast the wings in yellow brass and I am about to cast the complete fairy in ancient bronze. Her stockings and […]

Faerie on Twig

Spruce Meadows 2

 

I have been working to finish my new work for Spruce Meadows. This show is an art show and I will be displaying pieces that are suitable for collection. I have four new works prepared for this show. None of these works are complete. They still require a patina, enamelling and final polishing and finishing. […]

Spruce Meadows

Spruce Meadows 1

 

It has been a while since I posted anything, but that doesn’t mean I have been completely idle. I am making new pieces for my upcoming show at Spruce Meadows in early September. I’ve made a new pirate wench, new treasure chests, two new cannons, two new fantasy fairies, and a new faerie on twig […]

Cannon

Cannons and Faeries

 

Today I cast a few parts so that I can make another version of my Faerie on Twig and two new cannons to supplement my new Pirate Wench and Treasure Chest sculpture. The difficulty I have with casting cannons is that my wax models are at the maximum size of my tallest 7 inch casting […]

Pirate Wench

Pirate Wench 4

 

I am making a new pirate lady so that I can have one available for my Spruce Meadows show in September. Fortunately, both of my previous works sold at the Calgary Expo. I am happy that people like my work but in some sense I was sad to see these go as I quite liked […]

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman 3

 

I just thought to post a couple of pictures of Wonder Woman. I have been working on her for the past month since my furnace was repaired. I now have this casting all assembled and partially cleaned. I am beginning to put some thought into how I want to finish this work. Wonder Woman’s cape […]
