I spent some time at the Pratt Fine Art Foundry and I really enjoyed it. But I was drawn to the technical aspects of pouring bronze and the challenge of the “post production” work. There were times when I was just wanting to take natural objects and see what happened when you used the investment casting process. That process was typically known as “lost wax” due to the use of wax models that evaporate during the time in the kiln. One particular failure was the “lost fish process” when I tried to make a cast of a rainbow trout. There were comments that the neighborhood cats where all hanging around … but the bones all ended up in the bottom of the bronze and were just a mess.
The lost banana was much more successful.

The banana turned out great. I recently have done a few collages with items that will decay or “age” and one of them has 2 banana peels getting skinnier and brittle.
Great idea… I love it. and thanks for your comment. I appreciate it.
Congratulations! You did it’! Love this banana.
Thanks, Pat. Sorry I’ve been delayed in my responses to your very nice comments. We’ve been jammed with getting ready for the garage sale we had yesterday. It turned out well and I hope things will quiet down some. Claudie is having her knee ‘scoped tomorrow, so she’ll be quiet, that’s for sure…
