Bronze casting of the Dancer complete

     The Bronze casting of the Dancer is now complete.  If you were able to visit my latest work called "Hand" you might have come across a figure in one room who danced in front of a wall of blue butterflies.  I have, in the past, created studies for my characters in wire, wood and something called Hyrdrocal but after speaking to my friend Toy, I decided to make the jump into Bronze.  It is a big jump because it is quite expensive to do and you kind of just have to hope someone will want to buy them after you have invested in having them made.  In the picture to the right you can see some of the stages I went through before finally arriving at the bronze casting.  The first shows the model I created in Zbrush, a 3D program.  The middle image is of the Dancer within the virtual space of Second Life.  The third image to the left in white is the 3D print.  From there is created the wax model which you can see below.  We used the lost wax process to create a mold to hold the molten bronze.  Essentially you create a cast around the model then melt it so that the wax runs out leaving a cavity to pour the bronze into.  Then 30 were created with each being 4 inches tall.

Below you can see some more images showing molten bronze being poured.  So yeah I am really excited.  If you are interested in purchasing one of the 30 bronze sculptures then please email me at giving your address for shipping as well as the edition number you wish to purchase.  There is a list showing which ones have already been sold and what is still available.  I have decided to first put the work up for sale to Second Life users who have supported me for the last ten years and then what is left over will go into a first life gallery or exhibitions to be sold.

And here to the right is the finished bronze sculpture.  I am pleased with the sales and it encourages me to perhaps make some more of my characters into bronze sculptures such as the Rabbicorn, Mr Zippers, Anna, Flutter, The daughter of gears or others.  Something to think about anyway.  Perhaps once a year.

So yes anyway if you would like one of the remaining works please email me at and say which one you would like along with your shipping address and I will reply with the total cost after shipping.
