Bronze Workshop – Julia S. Rasor
Fine Art Wax to Bronze Workshop
Acquiring the skill to sculpt in wax rather than clay can cut the time and cost to create a bronze sculpture by one third to one half because only one, rather than two molds is required. Students will make a 6 to 8 inch figure from sculpture wax that will be sent to the foundry to cast a one-of-a-kind bronze sculpture.
The base of the sculpture will be made from the artist’s found object(s) resulting in a piece that is very personal and specific to the artist – it preserves a history important to them.
Constructing the sculpture in the form of a posed figure captures the artist’s emotion and thoughts and projects them into the piece. All experience levels are welcome. Instruction is tailored to individual goals.
