Ouroboros in Wax

This is a picture of the Ouroboros in wax. It was made from the mold of the clay piece. The next step will be to make another mold of the wax out of a ceramic material. Then melt the wax out of the mold and pour the bronze into it. I think the piece will be cast in several parts. The pieces will be welded together to create the work in its entirety. Read More

Ouroboros Mold Making

Took the clay work over to Larry Lugar of Lugar Foundry in Eads. He's the best. This is a picture of the mold making process. The Ouroboros is encased in latex. Then plaster will be applied. After the mold is finished, a wax will be made of the Ouroboros from the mold. Can't wait to share. Read More
