Bronze Boy – shall we cast him in resin?

Bronze Boy     [Andre 1999]


I just got some pictures of David’s,  a friend of ours, Bronze Boy statue by Andre 1999.   It really caught my eye as it was setting in his garden.  The statue was presented to him as a gift by the artist and he had it shipped from the UK to Chiang Mai several years ago.  The cost of shipping it was very expensive because the statue is a bronze casting and really heavy.


I talked to David about allowing  a mold to be made and casting resin copies of the work and putting them on our web site for sale.  The statue is about 3 foot. long and by casting it in resin it should be fairly light, at least enough to keep the shipping charges in line.  

Thought I’d post images of it here and see if people are interested in getting one.  Don’t know the cost yet but for a mantle or center piece in the garden it is unique and exclusive.  Once I find a artist or caster to make the above copy, they could also create modifyed poses. Think of the possibilities.

What do you think? – worth checking into.?


Back to the masks

Sawadee Khrap

Well, we’re back to the masks today – apparently it’s been a weather thing, wind pattern concentrating the smoke and particles in the Chiang Mai valley – and it’s back again.

Not as bad as before but you can smell and taste the stuff in the air – visibility has really gone down this morning compared to last night and no rain in site.

Computer time, Computer time — thank God for the computer – now it is really a blessing – something to do when you can’t go out.  Photography is out of the question – too hazy.  Not a good effect, although it does make some rather great RED sun shots – just a big red ball now glowing in the grey sky – uggggghhhhhh
