The following is a twenty foot long fiberglass relief sculpture that adorns the front of the Goldens Bridge Firehouse, in Goldens Bridge, NY. It was commissioned to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Firehouse and was installed in June of 2009. Drawings were submitted to the officials of the Firehouse and a specific design was chosen. A scale model in clay was created and approved. Then an easel was constructed to facilitate the large scale sculpture in styrofoam and clay. The clay sculpture took many months to complete and refine. It was then moved to a fiberglass foundry where a fiberglass mold was layered on the clay sculpture and eventually a fiberglass cast was taken from that mold. After some refinements, it was airbrushed using high quality paints on the cast to create an exciting and vibrant finish. A final coat of clear fiberglass was sprayed on the sculpture and the piece was transported to Goldens Bridge for installation. Below are photos of several steps in this process.
