The Art of Bronze : Creative Casting
Spring 2018 quarter
Explore the art of bronze casting. This is an intense hands-on course that explores the lost wax method of bronze casting, an age-old technique of creating bronze statues and sculpture. A pattern is created out of wax, then encased in a gating system. The piece is invested in a plaster/sand mix and the wax is melted out. The negative space is then filled with molten bronze and once cooled, broken from the investment mold. The gating system is removed and the bronze piece chased and finished with a hot or cold patina.
Full attendance is mandatory to complete the process and additional outside of class work will be required in the metal shop and/or 3-D studio.
