On the right are two castings
I made from an original on the
left. They are for a vintage door
hinge…no one but me ever noticed
the originals were missing nor
noticed when I installed the replicas.

Front Door Re-casing

By | casting, sculpture, woodwork | No Comments

I have this nice leaded-glass transom, but it was all rather plain,
so I decided to punch it up with some new casing. The corbels are
sculpted in Sculpy and set into wooden housing. I then made molds
and cast numerous copies in plaster. The woman represents the
warm season and the man represents to cool season and the
emblems above them echo that. The emblems are carved, sawn
and glued wood. The grooves on the vertical casings were
produced on the table saw. Some of the trim is store-bought
millwork and some I produced, like the dentil.
