Maria casts wax in catalytic sand which she then re-sculpts with a small drill. this gives each work a distinctive original quality.4. An employee pours the desired metal. 5.The rough hewn sculpture is sandblasted by the artist. 6. Various chemical patinas, stains and original experimental patinas are applied by the artist. * Lay Away Plan is acceptable for purchase
