My bronze figures all begin as clay models. Sometimes I have to go back and recreate a clay piece in order to cast it into bronze. I love the look of bronze and some groupings have been popular enough to warrant an investment in bronze.
I have taken many foundry classes over the years. For several years I was casting at the University of Minnesota. Currently I do all my casting work with American Bronze Casting in Osceola, WI. Their family owned and operated foundry has been very helpful and fun to work with.
