#21 Lost Wax Bronze Casting

When my work is being cast I'm in the foundry everyday  -  checking waxes, metal, patina, etc.  My home and studio is less than 5 miles from the "foundry mother ship" and I'm tethered to it.

I never tire of seeing molten bronze being poured using the ancient lost wax casting process.  At a later date I will explain the foundry procedures in greater detail.
