The journey from modelling to completion for each sculpture is a lengthy and meticulous process. Lorenzo Quinn begins by sculpting the model in clay or wax to be coated in plaster, ensuring to etch all the details at this stage. Once the plaster has been removed, the finer details are then added, making each limited edition sculpture inherently unique. Layer by layer, the model is coated with liquid ceramic and sand until dry, ready for the molten metal to be poured inside. After breaking the ceramic away from the sculpture, the wielding and colouring can then be added, finalising the piece.
The creative journey for each piece begins with a poem before the any of the sculpting commences.
Poem: It is essential to find a balance in life. Many times that balance is achieved with the help of the people who surround us and hold us firmly to the ground, and without whom we would float in to perdition.
This piece is constructed from marble and bronze on a granite base.
