Foundry Wax Remains

Foundry Wax Remains was made from leftover wax I did not get to use in the foundry classes I took during my undergraduate degree in Montreal. I kept those remains with the intention of melting them into future lost-wax foundry projects. I brought them with me to Halifax, thinking I would use them during graduate school, but the occasion never presented itself. I ended up moving them around for a few years—folding and pressing them into different configurations inside moving and storage boxes. 

I eventually got the chance to return to the same foundry where I had done my undergraduate classes but, this time, as the foundry instructor. During my first semester teaching the Metal Casting classes, I decided to cast, in bronze, those bits and blobs of wax I had kept as they presented themselves.
