Hope Rising Patina Brass

by Jonathan Kipp Becker


The surface treatment and materials in this copy of Hope Rising were inspired by a couple of new friends who wished to have this sculpture in their garden.  So the quest to find materials that could withstand exterior display began. The findings have resulted in a process that is now being applied to almost of the hollow castings being created in the studio.  You never know what will happen when you shine a little sunlight on a problem. 

This piece is made with gypsum plaster, resins and hardeners, brass infused acrylic, weather sealers and patina spray
