Bronze Bear "Distraction" Sculpture

This is a bronze sculpture I created in my sculpture II class. I titled this "Distraction" hmmm.... what could he be so preoccupied with, that would make him miss his dinner jumping right under his nose!
~ I use the lost wax casting method on my bronze sculptures, although on this particular sculpture I added a couple of extra steps to the process in order to create a mold. When a mold is created you have to start by sculpting the piece from plasticine (a clay-like material) then you pour the amber mold around the sculpture, after it hardens you cut out the sculpture and you have your mold! Then you can pour the wax into the mold and continue with the lost wax casting method.
