Sculptor Robert Marcus discusses two different methods for making bronze sculptures by “Lost Wax” casting methods, sharing his aesthetic considerations in using these methods to create sculptures.
Robert Marcus enjoys the texture, appearance and strength of bronze, and most of his sculptural ideas find their final form in bronze metal. Marcus is inspired by the flowing curves of the human form and the negative spaces they create. His work ranges from wall reliefs of wistful biomorphic shapes to life-size bronze abstractions, often including playful topological shapes. Bob’s sculptures have won prizes in competitions and shows over many years in the New Jersey-New York area, and many of his pieces are in private collections in this country and in Canada.
