Self Portrait Bronze
With the assistance of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Art department, Lanakila made a mold of her face and hand with plaster of Paris. Lanakila created the composition by pouring sculptural wax. A mold was made off of the finished wax sculpture and finally molten bronze was poured into the mold. This was followed by extensive preparation and finalized with cupric and ferric patina.
The abstracted form comes to life with a candle placed inside of the bronze mask.
Displayed here is a portfolio of bronze lost wax casting technique.
We design and collaborate with bronze fabrications local and abroad to create custom sculptures, water features, gates, and railings.
