During lockdowns, more than 250 of our members worldwide created the bronze sculptures in this exhibition, using just 10 grams of modelling wax.
The idea was simple. Each sculptor received a tiny piece of wax, roughly the weight of two heaped teaspoons of sugar, through the post in order to make a new work. They then sent their tiny sculptures, also by mail, to the Milwyn foundry in Surrey to be direct cast into bronze.
The project is a creative response to the time of uncertainty and isolation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
We would like to thank Alex Davies MRSS, the founder of Milwyn Casting Ltd. who is a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors. He had the idea for the 10gram Challenge and helped make it a reality.
