Laser scanned to create a digital footprint for 3D printer.


22 individual plastic 3D printed sections were glued into 4 sections (for ease of welding in bronze), dipped in hot sculpture wax to smooth texture & imperfectionsprepared ​for ceramic shell investment molds with base plate, burned-out in kiln, and then poured using the traditional bronze casting process.


5 sections were welded together to match the original V, followed by grinding, sanding, polishing, and patina color.  The piece took one year to complete in 2018.

2000

Vessel of the Spirit 

In 2000, Marge McAuley and Family commissioned a sculpture to honor her late husband Robert McAuley to beautify the entryway atrium of the new Mercy / UC Davis Cancer Center, Merced, CA. 

Vessel of the Spirit

6'9" x 1'8" x 1'3"

The vessel is a timeless symbol, a utilitarian object that holds food or water for sustaining nourishment.  Here, it represents a container for the elixir of healing medicine, spilling forth from a vase resting on the figure's hip.  The human body is a vessel as well, temporarily housing the spirit, the soul.  An eternal flame rests upon two crossing vertical lines that point upward toward the heavens symbolizing victory of eternal life.

Memories 

19" x 8.5" x 3"

Edition of 7 - SOLD OUT

Enlargement - 7'4" x 2"10" x 12"

The original was scanned by a laser, information fed to a CAD (computer-aided design) program, then linked to a lathe which cut a 7' block of urethane foam.  We covered exterior in fiberglass before hollowing interior, gel coated textured finish, sanded smooth and painted in automative enamels to replicate a bronze patina. 


Mixed Medium: fiberglass, gelcoat, urethane foam, aluminum, steel, wood, & enamel 



Grand Opening of the MAC

The two were first displayed together at the Grand Opening at the Merced Multicultural Arts Center Exhibition in 1996.


The fiberglass foam enlargement is very light weight, which

makes this work ideal for transportation to multiple exhibitions - no forklift needed.

For Sale - to be cast in bronze upon commission

It can be enlarged any scale with the aid of a 3D printer.


The enlargement would mirror the thin quality of the original piece, rather than the thicker structure of the fiberglass enlargement.
