Remo individually creates and hand-casts each of his unique bronze sculptures from one-of-a-kind wax models using the “lost wax” method of bronze casting which is thousands of years old; the cast bronze sculptures can likewise remain for thousands of years to come. He says that “to stand next to a roaring furnace melting metal at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit for such a bronze pour is a powerful event that can move even the most stagnant of souls.”
Remo trained in the ancient art of lost wax bronze casting from 1997-2006 in Tucson, Arizona before embarking on a cultural exchange of sorts to New Zealand. There, he lived for the next eight years - teaching
bronze casting, building a foundry for the community, and learning traditional Māori wood carving. Now living in the Honey Brook (PA) area, he is proud to share his passion for bronze as part of the Philadelphia Sculptors group and is stoked to share his sculptures with you at Ivystone Studios.
“Inspired by the very essence and duality of life itself, I aim to create meditative works on the interplay between light and dark, space and
metal, movement and stillness, fluidity and solidity.... pieces that ultimately celebrate our convergence of the finite with the infinite.”
