This is bronze sculpture with a patina. The figure was first made with clay. From the clay figure I made a mould with plaster from which I made a plaster figure. From this plaster figure I made a silicone mould from which I made a hollow wax figure which I eventually took to the foundry to be molten to a lost wax cast.
The sculpture depicts the bust of a harlequin. I made a series of harlequins in different postures; sitting on a cube, sitting crossed legged and standing which could be used as bookends. When I was making them, I realised that the bust was beautiful and could be used as a paper weight.
