I believe that children support the world.
Loving Support and In Love were created as a pair to complement each other.
I created the macquettes of Loving Support and In Love to share my intense feelings about family, loving my husband and loving my children.
I created them one after the other, making In Love first. I didn't use models for these pieces, they all came out of my head.
The internal structure was made from welded pipes. I constructed the sculpture using hemp rolled in plaster of paris. The final surface was refined with rasps and screen material to achieve the finish. Molds were made and the pieces poured with wax. The lost wax method was used to cast the large bronze pieces.
Individual pieces were welded together, chased and patinaed. The finished figure was mounted on silver sprayed wooden base.
The enlarged bronzes are available for purchase.
