This was an awesome project and how I met my friend Jonathan Newell of JN Design. We made about 20 of these in 3 different scales. It took about 1000 man hours at least!

That looks amazing. Do you have any "in-progress" pictures of any of these. I bet a lot of people would like to see more of that work also.
"Metaling In Art" is how I am starting out and this is the link on Facebook.

These really are beautiful. Amazing amount of detail, which really takes advantage of the lost wax casting process. I'd love to see any process pix.

That is awesome work Scott. Also visited your website and I am sure that your contribution to MAF can be very meaningful. Posted ImagePosted Image

I am happy to have been a part of this project, we utilized lost wax, fabrication techniques with silicon bronze extruded pieces, water jet cut pieces, blown glass from Germany, an artist named Hans from Big Sur CA helped with a bit of sculpting and we even used reduce-it to replicate some pieces for the smaller scaled lanterns. This was all about 10 years ago and it's really fun to remember doing it! We cut and slumped the blown glass panels to fit our lights too. I can't imagine trying to make the originals 200 years ago without our current technologies/conveniences! If I can dig up some old pics of the in progress I certainly will.
