Mold Making / Herstellung von Gipsformen

I am currently living in Berlin, Germany and am available for free-lance contract work. Here are examples of projects I’ve done in the past. Feel free to contact me for consultation about mold-making, reproducing and/or enlarging sculpture in general.

This is a silicone brush-on mold I did for the Squirrels on Locust public installation project at the University of Pennsylvania. Squirrels on Locust was the first student run Public installation at Upenn, and involved the creation of over 30 statues, which were then painted by the different student groups that bought them

Here are the first 3 casts, out of 30. These are still in need of repairs.

This photos shows roughly 20 of the finished casts, before painting. Next to me is John Agbaje, who originally initiated the Squirrels on Locust project, and now co-creates a comic, Project 0, with his brother Charles.

Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures of the mold making process, but here is a picture of the finished project. The 12 ft long dragons where installed in China Town, Philadelphia. The dragons were modeled and cast at the Ward & Elicker Foundry in NE Philadelphia.
