Loch Leven I

Marion Smith - Loch Leven - A series of fifteen small-scale bronze works

A series of sixteen small-scale bronze works.

Commissioned by TRACKS (The Rural Access Committee of Kinross-shire)
Completed 2008

Material: Cast Bronze

Diameter of each: 8.5cm

The works are integrated into oak seating on a new network of pathways around the loch, they were designed to be site-specific relating directly to especially commissioned couplets, which reflect the landscape and heritage of the loch, they are made particularly to appeal to children.

The designs were realised by carving them into plaster, taking rubber moulds from the carvings then pouring wax into the moulds, these wax versions were used in the process of lost wax bronze casting.
