I’m going to the foundry weekly to check on things and make sure things are looking good and that we are progressing on the sculpture. This week I saw that many of the waxes of the praying man were gated up. This means that wax rods were put in place for the gases to escape. Pouring cups were added as well. Then each of these pieces are dipped, many, many times. Depending on the humidity this can take several days. Other molds are having wax brushed in them. Still others are almost ready for a metal pour. The many pieces of the sculpture are in various stages of the foundry process.
