Work In Progress

This category shows how I cast bronze figurines, bronze sculptures, and other bronze curios. These are my Work-In-Progress postings.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Iron Faerie

The Iron Faerie

 

When I took my product photos for my faeries I had forgotten to mount a gemstone inside the flower petals on the faerie’s hair. So, I have to redo these photos. But, you might just as well see what my Iron Faerie looks like. She is mounted on a piece of Limonite from Morrocco. Limonite […]

Faerie on Twig

Faerie on Twig – Final

 

I have finished my faerie and I took pictures to post this as a product, but then I realized that I forgot to put a gemstone into the centre of the flower in the faerie’s hair. So, here you go. These are some of my better quality pictures that are not taken in my workshop. […]

Faerie on Twig

Faerie on Twig 5

 

I have cut and polished and drilled and pinned my granite and marble bases for my faeries. Working with stone can be fun, but it is much harder to cut and drill granite than marble. It’s also challenging if I am working with special stones such as the Limonite (iron ore) that I am using […]

Faerie on Twig

Faerie on Twig 4

 

I have finished assembling the faerie’s twig and I cast the final set of wings for my faerie yesterday. I have actually made two faeries, but only one will sit on the twig. The other faerie will sit on an outcropping of limonite that I have. Limonite is iron ore, for those who don’t know. […]
