MIKE KARCZ 2022

BRONZE SCULPTURE

Mike started is art as a birthday present of sculpting classes. After several months, he discovered that he really enjoyed sculpting and that he definitely had an eye for detail. His pieces have been sculpted in clay and then bronzed using the lost wax method.

The process begins with creating a polyurethane rubber mold. A plaster casing then encases the mold which has to cure for about two weeks. Once the vessel is cured it is then taken to the bronze process. Bronze is pored at a temperature over 2000 degrees. After the bronze cools the image is taken and sandblasted and the patina process begins.

A Note from Angela: Year One of Wind Sculpture Production:

Tony and I have been incredibly busy and focused on mastering the creation of the copper wind sculptures since December of 2019 through early October 2020.

From December thru April we worked four days a week in our friend’s shop cutting out and shaping over 3,000 copper cups and prepping the axel, shaft and brass rods for over 60 wind sculptures. Tony had gigs with “Unity the Band” every weekend until the lockdown in mid March. In February Tony put his 3 month notice in with the band (after 15 years of being a full time traveling musician he was ready for a break – little did he know that the entire music industry would be forced to also take a ‘break’).

May thru early October we worked on assembling, cleaning, polishing and/or patina and clear coating the wind sculptures. We did this on every nice day we had. Eventually we were able to fill up the sculpture garden and do our best to keep it full throughout the season. It was a fun dance between soldering cups or polishing and tending to customers when they came in. Needless to say the summer flew by with the new routine.

In early October the temperature dropped and for the first time in 10 months we were able to take a break from production. This gave us time to harvest the garden and prepare for winter. And also took the opportunity to dive back into jewelry and mosaic production which will be ongoing during the off season.

We have so many wonderful new creative ideas for 2021!! Stay tuned to a whole new collection of Copper Kinetic Wind Sculptures, Indoor and Outdoor Mosaics and a fresh new collection of Handmade Jewelry!!

Gift of Tears!

We are so excited to debut our first song, “Gift of Tears.” Written (lyrics by Angela Lensch) and produced (music and production by Tony Bessen, vocals by Bobbie Blackburn) during the winter of 2018/19. The song celebrates the healing power of tears/crying and the importance of holding sacred space for oneself and another when the gift appears.

In the winter/spring of 2020, Angela created a mosaic violin, inspired by our new song, for Midsummer’s Music Fundraiser for their 30th anniversary. Please enjoy the video Tony created to feature our song and the new mosaic violin.

TO PURCHASE A VIOLIN:

There will be a Live Auction of the 10 violins decorated by Door County artists. View all 10 magnificent violins and watch interview videos with the artists under the Events tab on our website. Download the Violins Trail guide to visit the instruments at Door County galleries.

Anyone can view the first hour of the gala by visiting Midsummer’s website at midsummersmusic.com, Facebook page, or YouTube channel. The program will include magical musical moments from the 2020 virtual season, which ran from August 5 through September 13.

Registration is required for participation in the silent auction and is available by texting vgala2020 to 76278 or going online at vgala2020.givesmart.co
