SCULPTURE: Stone, Wood, Clay, Plaster, Poured Stone
Alexandra Heintzelman Sharma
STONE: marble, limestone
WOOD: basswood, Manitoba maple, cedar. African purple heartwood, walnut, cherry and other hard woods.
CLAY: non-firing clay is my starting point for a finished work in plaster or poured stone.
POURED STONE: Of the casting methods, poured stone, being a more permanent medium for sculpture, is often used for pieces intended for outdoor installation.
PLASTER: this material is used for making a mold and also for the finished sculpture. Plaster is a stable, durable medium for final state sculptural forms or as an interim state for casting in bronze.
