Liturgical sculpture surrounds us in Christian worship spaces. I have not yet been to a parish that does not have at least one piece of sculpture, be it a stone or wood carving, fiberglass or sometimes even cast bronze. What is the process and technique to create a 3-dimensional artwork and then cast it in bronze? What are the elements that make a figurative sculpture unique and dynamic, not just a statue? What should a parish community anticipate and ask for when commissioning a bronze sculpture and what should the sculptor require of their client? Learn about what is involved in the creation of a commissioned bronze sculpture, from the beginning consultations thru the bronze casting process, finishing and installation!
