sculptors sculpting

If you've ever wondered about the casting process of sculpture, wonder no more. Bill Starke, whose works are at our gallery in Orleans, shared this website about an installation he did for Regis Jesuit High School.

Look here to see a slideshow of the casting, finishing, and installation of The Climbers. Each climber is about 32” long and weighs 20 pounds. Nine of them are on this 30' wall.

According to Bill, the installation is a "visual metaphor of the concept of climbing to the next level in life, the struggle to achieve and the journey to accomplish a goal. It also references the concept that the things we accomplish in life happen with the help of others."
