"In Vino Veritas I (In Wine there is Truth) was inspired from a delightful trip to the Californian Napa Valley several years ago. In retrospect, it seems quite fitting that not unlike wine itself, the inspirational seeds needed to age before the sculptural form would come to life." - Carol Alleman (www.allemanstudios.com)
Working in the lost wax technique, each of Alleman's bronze vessels requires approximately eight to twelve weeks from the creation of a wax form to the final application of patina. In addition to the sculptural form, a companion writing accompanies each work. Alleman is graciously and generously influenced by the feminine experience and power of the natural world. She is also creatively aware through incorporating number symbolism in each sculpture.
Good estate condition.
