Hand Casting

Near the end of 2010 I had a realization that much of my work is based on the subject of the body. While that is a subject for another day, I'm posting a few images of a smaller piece that is a investigation of those ideas. It was a two part mold of my hand that i subsequently cast in aluminum and bronze. The cast came out with spectacular detail and is a good investigation for my ultimate goal of creating a full body cast.

Batman Belt Buckle

This was a commissioned piece that I made for a friend of mine's Halloween costume.
It is two pieces of etched brass, riveted together, with a black patina to highlight the batman logo. I am very happy with the way it turned out and it was a wonderful little project.
