Dawn, I appreciate your broad range of talents. I agree with your other admirers about this - as well as you other exquisite, unique and outstanding works of art. Thank you for your kind words about "Vigilance". That was (another) one that just came from my imagination. Blessings, aew

Thank you, Carl. I make the original sculpture in clay (I prefer polymer) and then take it to a foundry to have cast. I learned and have done the entire process, and at one time my family considered setting up our own foundry, but decided against it -- it's a long, involved process that can be a bit dangerous and expensive, so it's easier to have the foundry do it. I still do some of the chasing (both in wax and bronze) and consult with the patina expert at the foundry about the color of the final piece. This tray is especially difficult to cast because flat objects tend to warp, so I had to find a foundry with special equipment for this one.

Dawn: I am very impressed by your bronze work. The way you intertwine floral elements with insects is very effective. How does one work with bronze? What tools do you use?

Your bronze sculptures are beautiful, Dawn. The longer I explore them the more creatures and flowers I find. You are truly multi-talented. ML, Zanobia
