Publisher Comments:

An essential guide to the secrets and creative potential of bronze casting aimed at artists, sculptors, and foundries

Bronze casting is exciting and versatile: bronze can be poured or shaped to any required form. However, there are few people who understand the full process and this practical book reveals its secrets and celebrates its versatility. With step-by-step guides and advice throughout, it focuses on the casting of fine art sculpture, using the "lost wax" process. By explaining the process and its potential, the book encourages artists to experiment and thereby produce exciting and unexpected results. It also offers insight into the history of bronze casting, advice on installing a foundry in your own studio, and guidance on working with foundries, as well as inspiration in the form of photographs of works by practicing contemporary artists.
