Combining the endurance and weather resistance of
bronze sculpture and the wall hanging capability of a painting, relief sculpture
is the best of both worlds. Sometimes there just isn’t space to accommodate
a free-standing piece or maybe more elements need to be included, as in a montage
painting, to tell the “story” surrounding the individual or location.
Patrick and Celia Soper combine their talents on relief sculpture work as
Pat often designs the piece, producing a sketch for client approval before Celia
begins sculpting the final work in clay. In this way, you the client, know just
what you are getting and often you can utilize the sketch to help convey the
project to board members or for fund raising or to be viewed at an event before
the actual bronze is completed. In many cases, the sketch has been unveiled as
an “artist’s conception” at a scheduled event when the foundry
casting time made it impossible to have the finished piece. Generally, with bronze
sculpture, you need to figure on three months casting time after the clay sculpture
is completed and approved.
At Soper Studio, we think we stand out in our ability to compose your ideas
into a relief sculpture and to create what is sure to be a memorable and attention-getting
piece of art!
