Six Bronze Abstract sculptures by John Dreyfuss varying heights of 5' - 8' Tall designed to be installed on a roof top terrace.
The Clients, MGM Resorts and Casinos commissioned John Dreyfuss to provide six bronze sculptures of different abstract shapes and sizes to be installed around a terrace that was going to be a garden atmosphere for visitors and blended in with the design.
Artist John Dreyfuss supplied all six sculpture Patterns for ART Research to produce rubber molds. Rubber molds were produced and wax patterns were pulled from the molds and they were chased and gate/vented for Ceramic shell. After all the shells were flashed they were weighed and then molten bronze metal was poured into each shell. Once the shells cooled then the technicians at ART broke out the metal castings and cut off the gated and vents. The sculptures were then welded, the metal was chased to an 150 grit and once the Artist approved the metal castings he worked with our Master Patinator to give the Sculptures the color that the artist was visioning for each 6 sculptures. Once the Patina was applied ART gave each sculpture a hot wax sealant.
The six Sculptures were delivered to Oxon Hill, MD by Charles Shirk Trucking. The names of each sculpture were: 5' Cornwall, 8' Early I, 6' Untitled II, 5' Portrait of a Prince, 8' Untitled I and 8' Early II

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
