Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon has been asked to create a life-size sculpture of Evelyn Rubenstein that will be placed in the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center- Houston. This blog is to document the artist’s process and to receive comments about Evelyn that help the artist to capture the essence of her subject. If you knew Evelyn and can share, please either post here or contact the artist personally.
I ran by the Betz Art Foundry today after receiving a message on my phone. "We are dipping." Dipping is the next part in the bronze process. Before the foundry could dip they had to gate up each of the pieces. The waxes need pour cups to pour metal into and gates that will help the gasses escape. Each piece is coated and dipped many times covering both inside and out. This creates a ceramic shell. The ceramic shell is where the bronze will be poured, but I'm getting ahead of myself. Next post the burn out and pour of Evelyn Rubenstein.
