Fred Spencer’s bronzes are originally sculpted in clay
and then molded in silicone for the numbered runs that are needed.
Seeking quality and perfection,
he personally works on each sculpture during the laborious and exacting bronze
casting process. Each sculpture requires two to three working visits to the foundry
to add the finishing touches needed in addition to the skill, and above all,
care provided by the foundry.
When Fred considers the bronze perfect, the patina, or color, is
added. This process is hand applied by heating the bronze and applying
combinations of chemicals that control the color of the natural oxidation
process. Careful attention to the patina results in deep rich jeweled
colors, which become a permanent part of the sculpture. The mask
is then given a clear glaze or waxing to bring out all the unique
beauty of the piece.
