Life Size Bronze by Gabrielle Fischer

Foundry work is hot, heavy, laborious and an incredible rush for me. Pouring bronze at 2300 F ladle by ladle takes time and concentration. Each dip and then pour takes energy and concentration. I love the work and even more love the results of free pour bronze. Fragmented - lacy - topographical images are created with this method. It allows for creating a lot of negative space that can then include glass from behind. These sculptures represent the work made by trial and error with myself and B. Jurgenson of Vineland On. working with various methods in sand casting.
