Bronze Rooster

Rooster Description

This rooster is a preview of four pieces that I have been commissioned to do. They will decorate four of the six gate posts in front of a private residence in southern Ontario.

There are a total of two roosters and two falcons. They are taken from the owners family crests.

The originals were carved in wood and from there they were increased in size by two and a half times after being scanned through a computer. This enlargement was used to carve them in foam. From there they were cast in bronze using sand casting and lost wax techniques.

This is a lively casting which will grace the gate posts to great effect and combined with the other castings creates a true monumental piece.
