#19 Women's Day - Bronze Casting in Italy part I

I created a new sculpture - the Beast - and decided to cast it in bronze. So this series is devoted to bronze casting and marble carving in the city of Pietrasanta in Italy. After a long journey, I ended up in this city of artists for artists. My guide to the bronze workshop was the wonderful russian sculptor Alexey Morozov, and the marble studio was shown to me by the famous american sculptor Richard Erdman. In the end, I received a bunch of mimosa on International Women's Day March 8 from its marble master Mario. I lived in a medieval palace hotel Albergo Pietrasanta and looked at the bell tower designed by Michelangelo. We are together with my beast again gathering in Italy soon. Wait please for the second part of the journey! We need your support. In this world of hot metal everything is very expensive and incomprehensible, but very interesting.
