PUBLIC SCULPTING EVENTS

Project to commemorate historic Dublin town pump




Michael Tizzano is a sculptor who feels quite comfortable interacting with the public while creating his sculptures.  Although most of his work is done in his Westerville, Ohio studio, he enjoys getting out and sharing his passion with others. He is very much in his element when responding to the curious on-lookeer or small child wanting to help out. This creative activity always draws a crowd.


From the start to finish, it is possible to watch this talented artist in a public setting create from lumps of clay a figure of a child, a dancer, an athlete, and animal or a portrait of someone. It is captivating to witness the forming of a sculpture in so short a period of time.   Oftentimes these sculptures will later be cast into bronze, but some are allowed to dry and are then fired. Working from a live model, or black and white photos, he works rapidly and with great energy in bringing the clay to life. On hand are visual displays of previous sculpting events, or "performance art", special sculpting and measuring tools and materials to inquire about and to touch. Information is also provided on the enlarging process. Sample materials used in mold-making and bronze casting will also be on hand. Mr Tizzano always interacts with the viewers, fielding their questions or comments and oftne uses humor in the process.
