The Bronzes

I have been fascinated with the process of making bronze sculpture ever since I read Benvenuto Cellini's account of the casting of his "Perseus". It took place on a dark and stormy night in Florence, during the Renaissance. There were good guys, villains, explosions, fires, heart-stopping suspense, and a happy ending. I got to see the Perseus myself in Florence when I first visited in 1962. It was only after another 10 years and a move to Alaska that I built my own melt furnace for bronze, so I could experience that excitement of creation. Now, I do not cast my own bronzes, but let the experts at Artworks Foundry in Berkeley do that job.

Bronze sculptures can be made one-of-a-kind, but are usually cast as Limited Editions, as mine are. All of the bronzes on this page still have available copies. Please feel free to ask me any questions about them or the process. You may click on the small pictures here to see larger versions, and on Jerry for more details.
