"Easy"

molded

How do you get a life size sculpture from wax and clay to bronze? The entire sculpture has to be molded and then sectioned, so as to allow for the bronze to be poured, in pieces.. they are later welded together..

The entired body of "Easy" is sectioned off into mold pieces, wax is then poured onto the molds. The next picture is of the wax after it has been pulled out of the mold. So now you see the pieces of "Easy" in wax.


September 10th 1999 is the day before the dedication of the Park in Winlsow and I am still 750 miles away in Nevada and this is what "Easy" looks like, and I have less than 24 hours to finish him and deliver him to the park in Winlsow.
