From Clay to Bronze: Revisited

From Clay to Bronze: Revisited

In 1979, the Louisiana Art & Science Museum presented an exhibition titled From Clay to Bronze: Frank Hayden. This show centered upon the lost-wax process, a technique for casting bronze whose name is derived from the melting, or loss, of the wax model during casting. From Clay to Bronze featured models of Frank Hayden's works that demonstrated each stage of this process. In this updated exhibition, From Clay to Bronze: Revisited, the 1979 display was recreated alongside a contemporary approach to bronze casting contributed by local sculptor Brad Bourgoyne who uses computers and 3D printers to aid his casting and sculpting processes.
