I offer portraiture done in a variety of end materials including bronze, plaster, and plastics. As in the mideval story of Nicholas Flamel who thought he'd live forever if he made countless statues of himself, erecting them all around his little european town; we believe that a portrait eminates a certain gravitas and commands a reverence that a photo, or some two dimensional works, cannot boast. Perhaps sculpture is not the gateway to eternal life, but surely the presence of a sculpted likeness is a path to a lifetime of honored rememberance.
The portrait bust of two years old Liam, for example, was started in clay from live sittings. When finished I molded the portrait and cast it in plaster giving it a bronze powder coating. With a rubber mold and mother mold such as the one made on this, I can easily cast the bust in wax and then into bronze. But long sittings are not necessary, I have found that between complete and detailed pictures, consultation with the client or those who have known the subject best and, if possible, one short sitting or 15 minutes a fine likeness can be achieved.
