Carter Museum: Bronze Casting

 

The Lost Wax Process
for Producing Bronze Sculpture

The Amon-Carter Museum (perhaps best known for it’s collection of works by the sculptor Frederic Remington) asked us to create this animation to illustrate the lost-wax process for producing bronze sculpture. This was, by the age of Remington, the preferred method for bronze casting and offered far greater detail and complexity than previous methods did. However, the lost-wax process is itself virtually a lost method today, so the museum wanted viewers to understand how such a process was acheived with late 19th century technology.
