Tasmanian Devil Bronze Sculpture by Eddie Wentorf - Gallery Salamanca

Eddie Wentorf

Eddie Wentorf's journey creating bronze sculptures started 25 years ago after an accident which damaged his left hand. While recovering he was totally bored and started working with clay. He needed a way to create income as he was not able to return to his trade. Clay had its limitation as to the fine detail he was looking for. Having worked all his life in metal, he turned to bronze casting. His first efforts were quite primitive but by observing other sculptures they slowly improved and he was able to sell to some local galleries.

His son David joined him and they now have complete control over all stages of the bronze foundry process, from creating the first sculpture in wax, to pouring the molten bronze and finishing.
