Diva IV, in the studio

Posted by on May 31, 2013 in Blog, In the Studio

The pose is classic, the abstraction of the figure – contemporary. In combination, the female form is dynamic and powerful. The verticality of the piece accentuates the overall impact of the sculpture. See Corbin’s sculpting process below.

Upon completion of the mold, the original sculpture is once again revealed after being covered in first the rubber mold and then the plaster mother mold. The top third shows the original sculpture; rubber mold material in the middle; and plaster at the bottom. The molds are removed and will be put back together at the foundry to begin the bronze casting process.
