Recently, I went to the Morris Singer Foundry to see how the latest works in my Gibran Sculpture Series are coming along.
At the same time, I am making a sculpture of Greg Gilbert’s drawing ‘Mother and Child’. Greg is a truly talented artist and friend. I’m pleased to say that it is well-progressed and I met him there to decide on the size of the base and to choose the colour of the patination (which is the process of finishing the surface of a sculpture).
This work will be available in a limited edition to help swell the fundraising for Greg’s cancer treatment. www.gofundme/give4greg.
I took a short video showing the beginning of the patination process while we were there.
Here’s Greg holding the blowtorch used for patination next to the almost-finished work.
