wax-after-mould The original wax



2-waxes 2 CASTS in wax

Horse-&-man-green-wax WAX A/P of ‘Standing To’ – some of the tack and harness and reins has been removed and will be worked separately, to be welded on afterwards

Pouring-iiPouring-i THE POURING. Molten bronze like liquid fire. Afterwards the boys and I went to see the bronze age, Roman and Viking artefacts at the National Museum of Scotland, many of which were made I guess, in a very similar way as this.


One of the bronze casts of ‘Standing To’ will be on show at Summerhall, Edinburgh, as part of an exhibition of work commemorating the Great War. The exhibition will run for the month of May.
