crows to go...

the wax positive, fixing and fiddling - no easy task.

The Crow Boys was an art school project, part of my sculpture class. They were a trial to make and their journey to life was fraught with difficulties. They were a fairly large sculpture for the bronze casting class and I made three of them, it seemed the right thing to do.

the wax positive and the amazing thing, they stood on their own.

It was a big project and it took ages and I learned A LOT. But now I have three beautiful bronze crows who have such personalities. They are collectively known as the Crow Boys and they've been around the block a bit!

As you can see they do their own thing. They are well traveled crows, although generally they tend to travel by boat or truck... The flying part is kinda hard with bronze wings.
