The Harvester

Bronze, mixed
1990,2010

$400

   
This bronze figure is the last work of my figurative period, and the last bronze.

This figure is working to bring in a load. I added the accent for contrast and to put the figure into context. I like the results.

I enjoyed the casting process, working in wax, then venting it. I made a ceramic mold around it. That unit was put in a kiln to 'burn out the wax”. Then the hot molten bronze was poured into the hot ceramic mold. The surfaces were then cleaned and finished. Patina was added last. This process takes lots of time and money, many steps, and special equipment.

She is a special lady!
