Obviously we are talking here about my method since some sculptors work directly on wax or polystyrene foam or wood, or do not go through the plaster step and, when the sculptures return from the foundry, they do not bother with patinating or polishing.

From Clay to Bronze

1 - Creating in clay (positive)

    The clay that I use is very malleable, even soft, which enables very quick action, even physical action. There remains only emotion; I dont have time to intellectualize or to doubt about my moves. This step usually lasts two weeks; it can take one month or more for big pieces. For instance, one month for Trumpets of Jericho (25 in./63 cm).
