BUST OF THE BRIDE OF THE COSMOPHORE - THE PROCESS
- This sculpture took over three months to complete.
- Two pieces : The column and the woman.
- The Base : The Doric column is made of resin reinforced with fiberglass.
- The Bride : There is a metal frame in raised arms and head. She is made of resin that is reinforced with fiberglass, and otherwise is empty inside to keep her lightweight. She consists of many layers of modeling and casting, to create her aesthetic.
- The octopus is made of resin reinforced with fiberglass. There is a metal structure inside it, stretching under each tentacle. It is not based on a live model, but rather molded, cast and created from scratch.
- Air tools and power tools were used to carve and create texture for all parts of this sculpture.
- The sculpture is then primed, coated in real bronze powder, then oxidized with patina and varnished
