No, it was cast in multiple parts. I think 4, but I'm not sure. It's been a long time.

Thanks, it's one of my favorite pieces as well. A lot of knowledge was gained while doing this one.

I can only imagine how hard it was because just carving the wax was sooo time consuming when I had to do a bronze piece for sculpture class.

Oh wow, this is amazing. I have to say, i know nothing about sculpture but just.. wow. I wish i had the money to invest in a wonderful work of art like this. Just out of interest, do you still own this piece?

Yes. That's a half life sized bronze figure. It's a limited edition, but because it's bronze, it's quite expensive. I've come close to selling it a few times, but the clients are always unsure about spending $6,000. By the standards of other bronze works of similar size, I'm selling it cheap, but I understand it's a lot of money for some people. I need to find the one's who think $6k is pocket cash.

Cheers!!

That is amazing. Bronze is the one medium I regrettably have never had the privilege of working with....

Thanks!! I suggest going to a foundry and taking a tour. If you can watch a bronze pour in action, you'll be hooked!!

Cheers!!

I know I would be. The cool thing about bronze is that it's such a permanent medium. Even more so than an actual oil painting... and a thousand times more so than a digital painting, haha.

That's for sure!!! you really need to be sure about going to bronze with a sculpture, otherwise it's around forever (unless you melt it) [link]
