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 […]

WooCommerce Shop Page Meta Tags

 

Your WooCommerce shop page is not a normal page for SEO meta title tags and description tags. Rather, your shop page is a product archive. The title for your shop page is often “Products” and not the title of your WordPress shop page. It can be difficult to change the page title and meta description […]

Wonder Woman in Wax

Wonder Woman 2

 

I wanted to have Wonder Woman cast in time for the Calgary Expo at the end of April. Unfortunately, with my furnace having failed I am not likely to have it repaired and back from the manufacturer in time to cast this figurine. However, I can make a wax model of the sculpture. I can […]
