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 […]

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 […]

Treasure Chest

Pirate Flag 2

 

Today, I made a hinge for my treasure chest. I also cut some granite to make a base for my second pirate wench casting. This is where I plan to set my 18th century cannon with the piece and, of course, fly the Jolly Roger pirate flag that I made earlier. The hinge for the […]

Pirate Flag 1

 

I am working on a second, different casting of my pirate wench. This casting is intended to be an artwork piece that will include my bronze cannon, a bronze seashell, and most importantly a bronze cast Jolly Roger pirate flag. According to Wikipedia, I am using the flag of Edward England, a wonderful pirate from […]

Pirate Wench

Pirate Wench 3

 

I have essentially finished my pirate wench. I first thought to mount the piece on a light colour granite base as shown below, but on reflection I changed to a dark base. I also picked up some iron pyrite at the local gem and rock show. When sparkling, this will help enhance the piece. I […]

Pirate Wench 2

 

Well, I have the pirate wench all together. This stage, which is the soldering and fitting and cutting, is perhaps the most tedious and possibly the most dangerous work. I work with torches and hot metal and grinding devices and sometimes it is hard to get pieces to fit together properly. After casting I clean […]

Pirate Wench

Pirate Wench 1

 

Folks, I am casting a pirate wench. It’s not on my to-do list for 2018, but I had to cast another pirate chest. I have studio time scheduled in November with Shona Rae, the metal smith and jewellery artist who first showed me how to cast metal. I want to learn new things and I […]

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”.

Pirate Bird Skeleton

Bird Skeleton – Complete

 

I took some pictures of my final pirate bird skeleton to post as a new item for sale on my website. I’ll put it up on Etsy soon. Some of my other pirate things like my pirate chest, hat, and skulls are not yet ready. I think I said that this bird would be most […]

Pirates 2

 

I’ve finished casting my pirate chests, bird skeleton, and some pirate hats. You’ll have to wait a bit longer for the pirate wench. She’s the one who is supposed to be wearing the hat. I’m quite proud of my pirate chests. They each weigh approximately 500 grams and are very solid. I have some hinges […]
