Open Crochet Form features strong lines and a swirling weave worked to create delicate open features, inspired by nest forms created by birds and insects who weave delicate protective structures. The weaving once cast become forever preserved in bronze and offers a view into the interior of the sculpture which is mounted onto a plinth at a slight angle.

Bronze requires very little maintenance to keep it looking great for years to come, just a light polish with a bees wax based polish is all that it needs.
How Its Made: Each sculpture begins with a sketch and an idea of size and scale required. To create the hollow forms of the sculpture a negative solid core is required, made from a carved block of investment plaster. Sturdy lengths of wax are worked across the surface laying down a linear pattern.
The areas created by the linear lines are woven into using a combination of crochet and swirl weave.
This unique wax sculpture is transported to the foundry to be transformed into bronze using the lost wax technique, where every individual strand of wax is preserved.
The sculpture is finished with the artists signature stamp, given a polish of bees wax and attached onto a wooden plinth.
