David Eisenhour is a sculptor from Port Hadlock, WA. He portrays and interprets organic forms. “Magnification informs my art. Looking at bits of the natural world under the microscope is my connection to the building blocks of life. The recognition of repetitive patterns gives me sense of belonging to something grand.” Through his artistic process Eisenhour tells stories of natural history in bronze, steel or concrete. His artistic vision reflects his lifelong inquiries and documentation of the forms and beauty in nature, as well as issues related to the environment. “I lose myself as I examine the intricacies of nature under my microscope and my art grows from this immersion. I search for forms that make a primal connection, that revive ancient memory. I hope that my work exhibits the fragility and wonder of this planet and our relationship with it.”
He casts his pieces in bronze by the Lost–wax process. It’s the method of metal casting in which molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model. Once the mold is made, the wax model is melted and drained away. The lost-wax method dates from the 3rd millennium BC and has sustained few changes since then.
