A bit of a leap forward in time. These are the first pieces cast in copper from beeswax lost-wax models dipped in clay mix. I’ll explain the process more later.
The finger tips are a simple development of the work that I was doing in Munich and were a good test of the process, being very fine but also small. I like that they are handmade by me for my hands; and exemplify the whole process- having been made using environmentally-friendly, traditional processes.
The surface finish is pitted, but I like this and I plan to make more. It would be fun to do a community finger project.
Takako Selway and I will do some filming of the process for her film about “Hands Making”
