How Long Does It Take to Create a Bronze Sculpture?
The short answer is, it depends! Of course larger pieces take a much longer time, but no matter the size all bronze sculptures go through the same process to be created.
Some of that time is getting the idea or inspiration for the piece. Sometimes that comes quite quickly. For other sculptures the idea may take a bit longer to gel in the artist’s mind. Of course if the piece is a commission, then the client must also be pleased with the work and so modifications are made until everyone is satisfied with the idea.
Of course having years of experience allows for the actual sculpting to go much faster, but it is still a precise and time-consuming labor of love.
The foundry work alone can take months.
All in all, for large pieces, Greg likes to allow a full year for the piece to be created and installed.
