Something from last year

Here are a few images of a terracotta sculpture I did last year. I'm currently working on finishing it up so that it can be fired.


  1. nice sculptures prof rossano. so how long does it take to finish a piece entirely.

  2. Thanks Chin! This piece is about 17" tall and took 30 hours so far. Depending on what I do with the base it could be considered finished or not except for preparing it for the kiln which should take a couple of hours. For work cast in bronze, the foundry usually needs at least four to six weeks. Their whole process is extremely labor intensive and requires a few different artists with different specialties including mold making and metalwork. The metalworkers actually have to resculpt quite a lot when they reassemble the separately cast pieces.
