In ’95 I was making cast bronze cat skull sculptures like the one above (“Catbeast”). It’s about a foot long and five inches high, welded together from six or seven smaller pieces, all of them cast from wax positives hand-formed to look like bones. The skull was different, though. I’d made a flexible rubber mold from a real cat skull to make wax cat skulls that I could cast in bronze. At this actual moment there are at least half a dozen solid bronze cat skulls in this house, in fact. When you make them out of bronze, they tend to stick around.
