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. […]

Kisekae Sets

 

For historical reasons, my personal library of approximately 500 KiSS sets collected from 1998 to 2006 is now available for use with my Kisekae viewer UltraKiss. To access these sets download and install my UltraKiss viewer. Use the UltraKiss Portal tool to access these sets. Note that these historical sets, as they are my personal […]

UltraKiss

 

In 2002 I developed a computer program that implements the Kisekae Set system, KiSS, a Japanese graphics system originally developed to facilitate costume changes on virtual dolls. Kisekae sets are drawings of anime characters with many different costumes, packaged in a file for viewing the work. KiSS is a presentation method that allows the artist […]

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 […]

Pouring Bronze

Furnace Repaired

 

My furnace was returned to me on May 17, all repaired. I’ve since fired it up and I am back casting bronze again. I’m currently making Wonder Woman for a customer who purchased this as a pre-order during the Calgary Expo. I am also casting two new treasure chests and a new pirate wench. Both […]

Geode

Onyx and Agate

 

I have obtained a slab of some amazing honey onyx stone for my bronze casting bases.  I have also obtained a few cuttings of translucent onyx. Onyx is considered a semi-precious gemstone. It can be carved and polished and used in jewellery.  To have a slab of beautiful honey coloured onyx is very special. Not […]

Wonder Woman - Gal Gadot in Wax

Gal Gadot 2

 

This is the wax model that I made for the Gal Gadot version of Wonder Woman as seen in the recent movies. As my furnace is being rebuilt I can’t make this in bronze right now. So, I will offer this version as a pre-order during the Calgary Expo. I should be able to cast […]
