Creating a sculpture of a family of six

About this project

I was commissioned to make a family group of two adults and four children. I made several small sculptures which were rejected by the client. Instead of having the parents together she wanted the children to be inbetween both adults. She did not want them to be too harmonious because that was not her family. She did not want them leaning into the group because that was too claustrophobic. The finish had to look like bronze so I attended a workshop in France to learn an 18th century technique.
