Here is Ed’s finished sculpture, titled “Balancing Time”. It was installed at the REALM Patterson Place Apartments in Durham, NC.
Ed Walker, owner of Carolina Bronze Sculpture, NC’s only commercial fine art bronze casting foundry, has attended a week long figure modeling class with well-known sculptor, Philippe Faraut in upstate NY.
During the week, Ed learned about sculpting both the figure and portraits. Ed commented that, “As one of the in-house sculptors for Carolina Bronze, this workshop greatly increased my skills with sculpting the figure. This training will help me with several upcoming sculpture commissions.” Visit http://edwalkerart.com
Philippe Faraut is a figurative artist specializing in life-size portrait sculptures and monumental stone sculptures. His media of choice are water-based clay and marble. From his extensive research of the human face he developed a technique of modeling the portrait that he shares with his sculpting students during his numerous sculpting classes and seminars taught throughout the US.
