This is a piece I made for Kurt that was cast from the original studio molds. I was hired to repair the original casting, then mold and cast clear fiberglass shells that could be built up and lit.
Here¬ís how it came to me. It had a really bad crack on the bottom, and a flaw in the casting.
You can see the crack and flaws on the left side here, my daughter is holding it.
Here¬ís after the repair, I cast parts and pieces from the other side, and also went to a hobby shop and bought replacement details that went on the bottom, most of them being train parts.
After the repairing the original I made a mold and cast it in clear fiberglass, I built it up and sent it to Kurt.
Here¬ís a pic of the clear casting.
And the completed build up.
The finished piece is 37" long. These won¬ít be sold through me as I¬ím not authorized to sell them by the owner of the original, but I was allowed to make one for Kurt.
