I am pulling my hair out trying to get everything packed and ready to roll. I am taking several stone and cast metal works with me along with most of my tools. My first destination is Denver to drop off the sculpture. Then, I am continuing on to Marble, CO to attend the marble carving symposium, completing a new piece and returning to the Loveland Invitational portion of Sculpture in the Park.
I thought I would also take this opportunity to showcase a couple of my finished MassArt cast metal works. Complete with patinas and bases. I was able to achieve quite a nice range using Birchwood-Casey M20 for everything but the Cicada piece. For that I experimented with Ferric Nitrate.
The larger models and reliefs shown here are aluminum with a graphite and wax patina.
