Materials: Bicycle parts, clay, wax, aluminum, cardboard
Dimensions: 10 in W, 17.5 in L, 8.75 in H
Statement: Process: "Lost Wax'' - (ceramic shell investment casting) Materials: Original form was made using an old bicycle helmet, oil clay, selected parts from the ''box''. A rubber and fibreglass mold was made over original in order to have a wax reproduction. A high heat ceramic shell mold was made over the wax positive. The ceramic shell mold was then "burned out" and the aluminum parts melted with an added amount of aluminum ingot. This liquid aluminum was then poured into the ceramic shell mold and once cooled, the aluminum sculpture was "broken out" of the ceramic shell mold and finished with a black hot wax patina. Extra parts from the ''box'' were then added onto the piece. The stand was created from parts from the ''box'' as well, then painted gloss black.
