Life's A Balance

My piece, "Life's A Balance," IS NOW a 6 1/2' tall by 7 1/2' wide by 6' long full sized sculpture. In the photo log above, you see the completed macquette in clay. Then we made the full sized armature of steel rebar covered in wood. Screening was applied over the armature, then oil based clay was applied and hand sculpted. From the full-sized clay original we made the silicone rubber mold. During this process, the original clay will get badly damaged and ultimately destroyed! The resin casting has been poured, the cast pieces were hand assembled, finished & polished, and finally hand painted. Since there is a completed mold, this piece can also be cast in a variety of metals. Most notably bronze, but also in aluminum, stainless steel and iron.
