Georgia's two most recent sculptures are now in the rubber molding phase. The mold will allow the creation of hollow wax replicas of the clay sculptures. The wax form then goes through the Lost Wax Casting process in the foundry, ending up as a bronze that is nearly identical to the original clay. Since the wax is "lost" in the process, each casting requires a new wax replica - so the rubber molds are used multiple times. Generally, Georgia limits her editions to 15, which means the molds will be used only 15 times and then discarded.
The Downtown Camas Association has purchased a sculpture of Georgia's to be installed later this month as a part of the City's Downtown Art Project. A local newspaper article about the unveiling and dedication:
Georgia began a break from larger public work this past fall to have more time for working on smaller sculptures that she has been wanting to create. She also had a number of ideas sketched out in clay that had been put on hold. The combination of completing this previously started work and her new ideas has resulted in a number of new pieces coming to completion from last fall through this Spring.
We should have full website postings very soon, but until then here is one shot of each new work, either in it's completed stage or in clay. If these sculptures are not on the main website when you see this, you can write or call for more information.
