Recent Edition, 2015 – 16: Olivia Musgrave
A sculptor who carves can continue to modify his piece and change it until he is satisfied, but a decision to cast in bronze is a finite thing and the so the modeller has to decide on the form of a sculpture at a relatively early stage. Once the process is started, few significant changes can be made and I know I must like something enough to embark on this journey. I will be involved in the wax, make minor surface changes in the metal and do my own patination ensuring that the creative process plays a part at every stage of the work, from sketch to the finished bronze.
