My creative process

One can easily deduce that sculpture is a very expensive hobby, so I had to take into consideration the economic reality before creating my subjects. That said, after much trial and error, I managed to find a very simple solution, which is still valid today.

I began to use wood as the primary material for my models. Stronger and more substantial than clay, wood gave me the possibility of dividing the model into a variety of pieces before casting and reassembling them to create the finished product.

This description, deliberately simplistic, implies a series of intermediate steps including rebuilding of the sections covered by the casting, and smoothing and welding the various parts together. But this is all part of the manual process that is less interesting to the reader.

All of my models are cast in foundries in Florence.
