I’m pleased to say that last Friday I successfully transported my completed sculpture from studio to foundry. This involved a number of party balloons in order to gently support the upper sections over the numerous potholes and speed bumps that exist between Reading and West Molesey. The photos below show the exterior of the foundry and a close-up of the finished sculpture.
Now it is over to the expert hands of Milwyn Fine Art Casting to create a silcone mould from this sculpture which will then be cut-free and used to create a replica in wax. This will happen in the next 5-6 weeks.
I will be returning to approve the wax and will look forward to sharing more photos of that stage, a process which I last engaged with during my Fine Art degree at Sunderland Polytechnic many moons ago.
