Sculpture

I first model the piece in clay and then cast the clay into bronze in my studio foundry.  The colors are a patina using both pigments and acids burned onto the bronze.  I am also casting pieces in paper, using the thousands of letters received through the Prisoner Express project in which I volunteer as art director.
