I was part of a team to reproduce the bronzee doors of the Library of Congress- Adams Building in Glass. My main role was the master mold maker on site to make impressions of the degrading Lee Lawrie sculptures. In total I made molds of 12 different sculptures on the doors and worked with the team to have them cast in glass and installed.
