Michael finds that bronze sculptures don’t look as good when finely detailed; they look hard and unnatural. Exaggerated features and heavier detail show the piece better when viewed from a distance. There is more spontaneity in his bronze sculptures. This means that the creative process is a bit freer and less contrived. Michael uses the lost wax process of casting his bronzes. The piece is carved in wax and then at a foundry the wax is melted out and replaced with bronze. ArtCast Foundry in Georgetown Ontario has casted his most recent bronzes.
