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.
