For the past 9 months I have been assisting on a major monument for Parliament Hill for artist Adrienne Alison. We are sculpting soldiers and warriors that fought in the war of 1812 that will be cast in bronze. The style is classical and figurative and Adrienne has a gorgeous touch, breathing poetry into these historical figures. I was not really used to sculpting this way but attempted my first bust for a Raku workshop and was pleased with the results. Smoke firing is magic!
