BAMS MedalPosted: May 17, 2016
Speaking to Dallas the foundry technician today I discussed the plan of action for the remaining time left before exhibition.Dallas suggested that I put wire around the shape of the vessel covering my medal to give extra support during the burn out and pour part of the process, this is a safeguard due to the first time of doing a bronze pour half of the shells cracked under the pressure of the bronze being poured in.
This safeguard means that an additional two coats one of which has been done today of ceramic shell molochite are needed meaning a burnout tomorrow isnt going to happen and due to inductions in Fine Art makes things more challenging as well. However I will get to burn out the piece possibly on Friday and be bronze pouring Monday giving me the rest of the week to tidy it up and fix any problems that might have occurred. This is the results
