Puu, valettu alumiini
This sculpture is part of my Man Series sculptures, which includes three sculptures; Man Nro.1, Man Nro.2 and Man Nro.3. This series got started when I got a commission to carve wooden portrait. Man Nro.1 sculpture is an unpretentious wooden portrait of a man. When I was doing this commission i got an idea to do couple another versions. Also in these sculptures, I did use wood, but I also wanted to combine aluminium casting techniques to them.
Man Nro.3 is also a combination between melted aluminium and wood. In here it is more about aluminium that wood. In this piece, there is not so much left from wood because the wood was in so tiny pieces that the hot aluminium turned practically all wood into charcoal.
