Woven wax and ancient casting techniques.

My proposal is to explore the direct casting processes of solid lost wax casting and hollow lost wax, taking inspiration and lessons from the Bronze age and the Ancient Greek period. To also discover surface pattern that can be achieved through hand weaving techniques, culminating in a collection of wax forms, that may be commissioned into its final transformation into bronze. Alongside this body of work will be paper maquettes, plaster shapes, a development diary and sketches.
