Art Workshop - Introduction to Bronze Casting

6/1/2021 - 6/4/2021
Venue: Ox-Bow Campus
3435 Rupprecht Way Saugatuck, MI 49453

This 4 day workshop will explore the basics of sculpting through lost-wax bronze casting. Students will work directly in wax to create a small, sculptural work of art. The works will be invested and burned out in a furnace in preparation for casting in molten bronze. We will work as a group to help set up the foundry, melt the bronze, and pour the works. Through hands-on processes and instructor-led demonstrations, students will learn the finishing techniques and patinas that will bring their bronze sculptures to life.

BRENT HARRIS is a multimedia sculpture artist who currently heads the Sculpture Department at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. Harris has a long history in metals and foundry work. His public work, and the monumental pieces cast over years at his bronze foundry, can be found throughout the United States. He re-ceived his BFA from Western Michigan University.
