Bronze Cupped Hands
Made in the USA
Each hand is 2 inches long x .75 inches wide x .5 inches deep
This gorgeous pair of cupped hands was carved in wax by Julian Bellows, my 20 year old son, and then cast in New Mexico using the lost-wax casting method. These hands evoke the plaster casts drawn and painted, historically, by students in classical art academies. They are a matched pair with beautiful detail, down to the wrinkles in the fingers and the outlines of fingernails.
What better way to celebrate the intelligence of our hands as makers than by having this beautiful pair of capable hands in your work space, holding your papers in place, your book open, beautiful and interesting, made by hand from the beginning to the end.
