The person to be portrayed comes
to the studio for several sittings.
If need be the work can take place
in the comfort of your own home.
Generally, 7 sittings of 2 hours
are required during which photos
are used to work on the fine
details. Of course for children
more sittings are necessary
After the sittings a plaster model
is cast of the clay portrait.
Once the portrait has been
completed and approved it is
sent to the foundry to be cast in
bronze or in cast stone.
Eventually the portrait is placed
on an appropriate pedestal.
