I have started doing something to lesson the expense of my work in the molding process. My foundry said that I could use anything to support my work as long as it burned out and was covered with a layer of wax (16th Inch) so I have been experimenting with all types of weeds and leaves. Often the fall brings on a beautiful death for all types of plants as they die and wither.
This was a fast piece to do because I kept simple and designed it to be a miniature and tall in consideration of filling a space that is limited to weight or an area that cries out for a little height.
Sorry about the condition of these pictures I have failed to be able to straighten them in the right direction even though when I pull up the disc it shows them correct...must be a glitch in blogspot.
|Feisty Visitor is a wren and I thought the patina lends itself to it very well.|
|This was just a simple design to not distract from the delicate atmosphere of the stems and bird.|
|The only part I regret is that I have to prefab the feet and ends of legs in wax each time I do an edition.|
