BRONZE CASTING PROCEDURE
 
Many times I have been asked to explain the steps
in creating a bronze work of art. When I received the
commission to sculpt the bust of Dr. Jose Camargo
I asked if I could photograph each step and present
a visual image along with text explaining the procedure.

The following is in essence a documentary of the creative
process from inception to completion of the art work.
