Just a note — I’ve extended free shipping on Etsy to limited edition brass pieces as well as bronze – that’s Faun, It Was Rabbit, and Crazy Hat Lady.
Some Etsy updates:
- Beau (the Boulevardier of Broken Dreams), limited edition bronze, is now available.
- I’m currently offering free shipping on all bronze pieces: Beau, The Sleep of Monsters, and A Raven for a Writing Desk.
- I’ve put up a couple of Plague Doctor Bird seconds at a discount.
Doctors Ollie and Clyde:
Here he is!
“Gary”, bronze, edition of 6, height 17 cm.
These are the new Garys at the foundry. They’ll be darker once they’re waxed, but this is basically what they look like. There’ll only be six of him, as the mould (made elsewhere) doesn’t produce great waxes, so that I have to do a fair bit of fiddly work on them. But I really wanted him to have a new lease of life and I’m happy with the result.
At the foundry:
And we’re done!
Had a photography day today. With pieces often looking a bit different between batches, I do a fair bit of re-photographing to keep pictures current. Maybe I worry too much, but I’d rather do the photography than be worried about whether people are getting what they expect. Got some cute pics of Sir Cumnavigator, who is now back on Etsy:
I’ve also cast five more of The Sleep of Monsters, which will be back online soon. I’m going to the foundry Monday to check the waxes for the sun and moon hares. I’ve made three Garys, and that might be all for now, as I also want to finish another Beau, and I’m hitting a wall with all this fiddling with waxes. I could try being less fussy, but that’s not really in my idiom. If I call this weekend the end of this year’s casting, I’ll have a couple of months to catch up on other things and relax a bit.
Gary, my very first sculpture, will be coming back in bronze (with his arm joined to his body). Working on the waxes now. I’ll decide on the edition size once these are cast and I see how they look.
