Here’s a project I have been working on for a long while. It has always been a dream of mine to make a real bronze piece. For this I decided to make 2 works. I thought I would also share some details on the process as it was a very collaborative endeavor and I learned a ton.
It has been a huge endeavor and I have learned a lot during this process. I want to thank everyone who helped me and I seriously couldn’t have done it without them.
