Cool, how much of the art work(forms I suppose) were you involved with? Takes a real man to work with molten metal.

the sculpting was done by a "real artist." lol... we're a casting facility here, which does entail a lot from original sculpture to mold making to casting to finish. bronze casting really does involve a communal effort.

as far as my effort, i'm involved in damn near every step, here, start to finish. from the artist bringing in a original sculpture in, mold making, to me putting the patina finish on. it's a pretty small foundry here, 4 employees, atm.
