Wax carving

Besides fabricating jewelry from metal there is also a technique called lost wax casting. First a wax model has to be carved. I still do it traditionally by hand. After that the model gets invested and burnt out in a kiln. The negative space will then be filled in with precious metal.
Here is a wax carving I made... stay tuned for the end result :-)
