Figure Study I

5,500.00

Solid bronze sculpture by Lee Kelly, cast in 2018 by Blue Mountain Fine Art. The material is silicon bronze which is a low-lead brass alloy composed of 96% copper.

This series of bronze sculptures, Figure Study I-IV, are the first new sculptures Lee has cast since he last worked with Shakya family of bronze casters in Patan, Nepal. Lee and dear friend Robert Pierce were awarded an Oregon Arts Commission grant in 1981 to study Newari bronze casting methods, which resulted in a long, fruitful collaboration between Lee and Kaji Shakya. When travel to Nepal became more difficult, Lee started to work with Tyler Fouts at Blue Mountain Fine Art in Baker City, Oregon.
