April 2024 - Susan Opie Bronze

Susan Opie’s bronzes are a delight of totally unexpected themes: a Chair Giving Birth,  Exquisite Corps with interchangeable Body Parts, Pies with Barking Dogs, Bug Pie and a Crocodile Pie just to name a few. “As a sculptor I am a modeler. Wax, epoxy and clay are all malleable substances that I can manipulate and coax into the shapes I want. Modeling in warm wax is the first step in the lost wax casting process that produced both the sculptures and the jewelry pendants. The pendants are mini wearable sculptures. Whatever the medium, each piece is one-of-a-kind.”
