My bronzes are limited editions of six, twelve or twenty-five. I like to say that if wood is the most forgiving material, then bronze is the most stubborn. Unlike my experience with wood & stone, I force bronze into a pre-existing form. Here, I ask the bronze to transform itself into a T Barny sculpture. Molds are taken of original stone or wood sculptures, then filled with wax. The wax image is encased in a ceramic shell mold and then the bronze is cast using the lost wax technique. Once cast, the bronze must be sanded to a smooth, fine finish before applying a patina. The patina process is a chemical oxidation of the metal’s surface in the direction of a particular color. T Barny’s patina knowledge comes from extensive research and testing of the ‘color direction’, as he ran the foundry at the Rhode Island School of Design.
