Crafstmanship: Bronze Lamb’s Tongue Scupper
June 27, 2016
This elegant water spout the recently completed Meadow Lake Residence is deceptively simple in appearance. Its traditional bronze lamb’s tongue scupper form took hours of careful labor to create. The method of casting designer and fabricator Martins Zinsbergs of Waterbearing Designs employed, the lost wax technique, dates back to Roman times. Watch this beautiful short to see how Roman craftsmen in 2000 BC made, and bronze artists in 2016 make, melted metal take form.
