Scherzo by Michael Boffey


This work was originally a real object which was moulded using rubber to enable a wax copy to be made. This copy is then ‘invested’ and then cast into bronze using the ‘lost wax’

Once this bronze ‘cracked ground’ is cool, further very intricate bronze flowers were attached and interwoven into the surface resulting in an incredibly detailed finish.
These additional casts were actual flowers directly invested and subsequently burnt out, then cast, leaving completely lifelike bronze flowers. These results are only obtainable using specialist casting techniques and are not achievable using the earlier mentioned ‘lost wax’ process, hence the separate casting methods.

Lastly the work was traditionally patinated to achieve the desired colouration and accentuated textures.
