Award Statue

 

People sometimes give out awards so I wanted to make an award statue similar to those given out at the Oscars or Genies or other shows. My logo image on my business card is a nice abstract figure. To turn my logo into an award statue I had to first turn it into a 3D […]

Cast Panzer Tank

Panzer Tank 3

 

My bronze Panzer tank story continues.  I had much success, but sadly a failure, too.  If you want to sympathize with me, read on … When I posted my last update I mentioned that I had decided to cast directly from the polystyrene plastic model to reduce cost.  This means that I will get better […]

Dead Pirate's Chest

Pirates – Complete

 

I finished my pirate work. This is mostly in preparation for my upcoming show at Calgary Expo 2017. I decided to mount all my pirate bronze on a custom granite base. I decided to call this work “Dead Pirate’s Chest”.
