Casting Austin in 2014
January 13, 2014 § Leave a comment
Austin is a small wax horse and the first of a series of three sculptures I began last year. He went on show at The Stone Wall Gallery in November in his wax ‘maquette’ form. For many years I have been fascinated by the process of bronze casting, and so it is with particular excitement that, as the result of a sale, I recently delivered Austin to a leading foundry, Powderhall Bronze, in Edinburgh, where he is to be moulded and cast later this month in a limited edition.
i. In the studio July 2013
ii. At The Stone Wall Gallery, November 2013 alongside other works Lampedusa, Austin in Wellington Barracks and Pod, a sculpture in ash and cast lead by Charles Poulsen
iii. At the foundry January 2014
Austin is to go through the traditional lost wax process and will be produced as an edition of 9, patinated to capture the same tone as the wax maquette. No 2/9 will be on display at The Stone Wall Gallery in February with a further 7 available in the edition.
