Sculpture description:
This project was carried out in situ at Fingals Hotel in Devon in 2010. The sculpture by
Bridget McCrum RWA FRBS was carved in Sanbdstone and was showing blisters in the stone with areas cracking off the surface caused by the harsh winter of 2010 where temperatures got below -15C. The project was initially to replace the statue in cast stone. Once the mould had been taken the brief was upgraded to cast the statue in bronze instead.
Artist's comments:
After having repaired the surface of the sculpture, I took a 17 part piece mould of the original. This traditional moulding technique is almost a lost art and took over 4 x 12 hour working days to complete using 10 bags of plaster. Over 1/2 a day was spent on the original design for the complex mould.
The video shows the moment of truth when the mould was finally opened. I can say I didnt sleep well the night before, hoping it would split open easily, but from the video you can see how easily it opens and that my calculations must have been perfect!
