A few years back, my wife was looking for a bust of her favorite composer for the piano, and we realized that nobody has made busts of composers since the days of Brahms and Wagner. Beethoven, Mozart, Bach and a few 19th century greats ---no one from the 20th century. As a sculptor and music afficionado, I felt it was my duty to start making the molds. The finished sculptures are all hand cast and finished. Hydro-stone casts are given a patina with a mixture of graphite and copperite dust in de-natured alcohol & food coloring, then burnished with a Dremel and hand-buffed. NOTE: what looks to be a gash under George's right eye is not a gash, but a shadow of an intended circle. He has been working late on Porgy.
