MARSHALL FREDERICKS ONLINE EXHIBITIONS
Marshall Fredericks's sculpture Boy and Bear began a technological journey to be transformed into a small bronze sculpture through the process of Rapid Prototyping. This technology would have fascinated and amazed Fredericks.
I was fortunate to be part of the process which began last week by Mike Hall from Preferred Tech of Waterford, Michigan. Hall brought his equipment to the museum and scanned the sculpture which resulted in a digital file from which a plastic model will be printed. The model will then be sent to a bronze casting company in Lansing, Michigan where a mold will be created and a bronze will be cast.
I will continue to update you on the process and let you know when the small Boy and Bear reproduction bronzes are available for purchase in the museum store.
