Zoey Wax Pattern

I spent a beautiful Sunday afternoon down in Lakewood at Two Raven Studio. The wax pattern is now finished and ready to be cast. It's in two halves so that the bronze will be hollow; after the metal is cast, the sculpture will be reassembled. The investment and casting will probably take place in Portland, but we may try out a small new foundry in Kent..

Zoey's ready for her mold

At last, another sculpture is ready for casting! Unfortunately, the Foundry in Tacoma has closed, but Ed, their master mold-maker is still taking in projects. He'll make the mold and then contract out the casting to a foundry in Portland and coordinate the chasing, patina etc. I'm delivering "Zoey" to him tomorrow. Here are a few images.
