Bronze Pagoda

I have been working on a series of bronze pagodas. Different sized ones. One at the moment I am creating is similar to Kinkau-Ji Pavillion which I saw in Kyoto.

I am also creating a five storied pagoda, similar to what I saw in Nikko, with the intention of them all working in conjunction with electrical elements…

These pieces are all created out of wax first and balsa wood which I will then create the plaster mould from.

Investing the wax into plaster to crate the investment mould …

The pagoda is now out of the plaster and I am finishing the surfaces. I have been angle grinding off various runners and risers that helped the bronze flow to all the parts.
