Focus is placed on likeness and sensitivity of execution. I look forward to working with you.
Sitting still, though helpful at times, is not required for sculpture portraits, therefore they are suitable for children and adults of all ages and situations. The clay model will be cast in bronze via the lost wax method.
A portrait involves a number of sittings. I make an initial drawing of the subject, and take detailed measurements and photographs from multiple angles. Then, alongside these, I work directly in clay from the figure.
Original clay models of commissioned sculpted portraits post bronze casting via the lost wax method, and small figures in fired clay.
