Nano Lopez’s Notes on “Sherlock”:
“A well weathered Welch terrier. He’s extremely experienced in the art of finding things, that’s why for many years now he’s been working as a detective. Sherlock refuses to give up his pipe, doesn’t mind rainy weather or cats, and he used to be a part of the K9 units, and on Saturdays he just goes fishing.” – Nano Lopez
He then creates a small working model in clay. Following that, he will then sculpt the actual piece. To see Nano Lopez’s full process, click here: Nano Lopez’s Process
In this artistic process, Nano integrates organic textures and human made objects into his bronzes to create pieces of art that reflect the same depth and richness he sees in the world around him.
The sculptures unique elements become part of the final piece in several ways. They may be embedded, applied to the surface, or even indented in the actual clay.
The bronze sculpture is actually created by a two thousand year old process, known as the Lost Wax Process.
