Aaron Angell lives and works in London, He has an upcoming solo show at Studio Voltaire, London, 2015 - www.studiovoltaire.org. Predominantly an artist working with ceramics, London Bronze Casting were approached to help fabricate a new Aluminium artwork of an Anchor.
The Anchor made at London Bronze Casting is component for a larger piece being produced by the Artist and Studio Leigh. www.studioleigh.com. This work will be shown later in 2015.
Images below show some of the process- from initial drawing by the artist, lifecasting of the hand, mouldmaking of the hammer, fabrication of all the wax (working closely with the artist), the aluminium cast & the final, sprayed white, artwork.
The work was a particular challenge to make as it came with the added risk of being a 'direct cast' - whereby the artwork is unique and does not have a mould to return to.
