dc.description.abstract The objective of this creative project was to create a series of cast bronze sculptures that would provide a ground for the exploration of metal patination, a chemical coloration of a metal surface. These bronzes were created using a ceramic shell investment mold and lost-wax cast in the Department of Art foundry facilities. Some of the pieces were cast in parts and either welded together or cold connected by drilling and pinning. Using recipes for hot and cold patinas, chemicals were applied to the bronze surface using a variety of application techniques, resulting in a subtle variation of warm and cool, transparent and opaque colors and tones.
