by Kelly Borsheim

Although I enjoy sculpting in clay (terra-cotta), I liked the idea of metal sculpture and needed to try my hand at it. The bronze medium allows an artist to sculpt thin, extending parts (such as arms and fingers). I like the grace and movement I can try to put in my bronze work.

There is a whole art unto itself in casting and finishing bronze. I was fascinated by the molten bronze as we poured it out of the crucible and into our investment molds. I learned the basics of welding and felt the thrill of using power tools as I shaped the cooled metal. And it is exciting to see how chemicals change and color the metal as the patina is applied--and even as the sculpture ages.

Many of the pages of the individual sculptures will include some text and images of the work as it was being created. If you would like to see more about the lost wax bronze casting process, please visit my bronze casting page. Thank you for visiting.
