Cathedral wax model

Posted in: Uncategorized


Remember that giant Gothic style pillar and its side wings I carved a couple of months ago? Do you recognize those shapes in the structure of the cathedral crown? Guess where they came from. Yep-the pillar.

I rearranged the wax injections I had on hand to build them into this new structure. I butchered several pillars to harvest the elements I needed and spent about 70-80 hours tacking it all together for casting. It was much harder than I thought it would be because injection wax is not carving wax and has different properties. When cold, it’s so brittle that delicate parts just flake off at the slightest contact, while its low melting point makes it so runny, that it’s almost entirely unsuitable for this type of work. Basically, the way this project was made is a very unorthodox abomination and probably an insult to a proper jeweler.

Taking it apart and molding it was absolutely unthinkable and frankly, impossible-so, it remains one of its kind. After I had made it, I had some serious doubts about it even being castable. Although I wouldn’t have made it if I believed it impossible to cast, I was still very nervous that some parts may not come out because was is by far the craziest metal project I’ve ever done.

I was overwhelemed with releif and joy when it cast perfectly, like a little miracle.
