The Captain is fully sculpted in clay! He will end up with the other firefighters I sculpted for the Nevada State Firefighter Memorial in Carson City, Nevada.
The Captain will head to mold making next, where a mold maker cuts the sculpture into pieces to make a mold of the figure. He will end up at the bronze phase in the next two weeks.
You can also see Firefighter #1 in pieces, ready to be welded together. This process can take anywhere from 5 to 80 hours of time. Texture and detail will be added back to the sculpture once he reaches the metal chasing stage.
I’m excited to be able to show all the firefighters in action, once this memorial is complete.
