Click On Images To Enlarge.
This Bull & Bear will be the large 54″ long size.
Each part of the figure is hand cut from 100% Revere copper sheet.
The texture is planned out directly onto the copper.
Each bump in the copper is a strike by a hammer. A variety of hammers is used during the process. The artist decides which one is used as he works.
Each side of each figure is hand beaten into shape.
The sides are hammered out and ready for the next step.
Assembling the figures.
Once the bodies are assembled they are mounted and braced to the 54″ arrow then the remaining details are added to the figures.
Adding the small details can be incredibly tedious..
After the last piece is added to the sculpture, the soldering is tidied up. The entire piece receives the etched sulfur treatment then is hand rubbed back to bring out the warmth of the copper color and to highlight the textures.
