A few weeks ago I posted some photographs of Birmingham sculptor Frank Fleming here. I promised you many more, so today we take a trip to Frank's studio. Frank is known for his large metal pieces often depicting flora and/or fauna , so I was shocked to see that he works in a small room in his home. I was fascinated by his work table where he crafts his wax molds. The first ( well maybe the second?) step in the creative process. Next time, some of his finished work!
UPDATE: I have chatted with Frank recently and he tells me that is a turtle shell that he is using for a mold.
And earlier post featuring his wonderful fountain in Five Points is here.
Wax molds of his famous figs!
