New Sculpture!

Piece of wood, with hole bored through center from insects. I poured molten bronze into this hole, and this is what happened.

I think it turned out great!

Good Times

pouring bronze into wood, lots of fire

the piece, out of the wood and cleaned up a bit

I found wood with tunnels bored out of the middle from insects, after cleaning it up a bit and clearing some of the contents inside the tunnels, I poured molten bronze into the holes, giving me these great positive casts from the negative space inside the branches. I think they came out very well! I had no idea what would happen.

Fine Arts: Open Studios, it was very successful. We had lots of traffic coming through our studios all night long. It is a yearly event held here at Ringling, where the senior Fine Arts class opens their individual studios to the public as they walk through campus and check them all out. It was a great event.

The Final Countdown

Seems it's that time again. It is the beginning of my last Fall semester here at Ringling. Feels good to be back in the studios working again, so below are some random pictures of stuff I'm playing with. I should have a steady flow of updates throughout the following months, enjoy!

Silent Effigy

Three tri-columns that can freely rotate independently around a central steel pipe with 9 different cast faces affixed to each side. The tri-columns were stained, and the faces are leafed with copper, silver, and gold leaf.
