Faded Christina


Christina produces small sculptures out of wax and makes them into bronze sculptures. By working in wax first she excludes the extra step of making a mold of an existing sculpture and them making a replica of it in wax. In order to make one of her sculptures the mold is made around the wax object and then heated in an oven until all the wax has melted out and any moisture in the plaster mold has evaporated. Bronze is then melted in a furnace and poured into the empty space that was once occupied by the original sculpture. After cooling the sculpture is liberated from the mold and cleaned and a patina is sometimes added to the surface.
