I love raw metal. These images were taken as the bronze sculptures were being prepped for the final step in completing a statue; the patina. I love the color of the metal as it’s being chased and then sandblasted. Heat is then applied and the chemicals are sprayed on in an evenly to create the finished surface color of the sculpture.
