Work In Progress

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

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 […]

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. […]
