Don’t let this part scare you. It is what happens with every single sculpture that goes to bronze. We spend all of that time making it perfect only to cut it up into many, many pieces. This part is usually done by the foundry. My team and I continue on with this part of the process. I like to do this because I can tweak the sculpture even more. There will be more smoothing and working with the sculpture.
Bridgette Mongeon created this sculpture for Dallas Baptist University. If you would like to read the entire process on the artists project blog for this project visit http://prayingmansculpture.blogspot.com/ .
