I had already built an appropriate base for the location and size of the piece, so I poured a few extra sheets of wax and promptly threw them on the floor. The shattered mess would supply the pieces that the families hands would “grow from”. After the wax was done and the Bronze investment was made we had it plumbed with propane. And finally I used two varieties of high fire baking grade stoneware to make the ceramic spheres. All molds and sculpting were done by Mark.
