Lifecast Memphis operated in the same space as Archicast, on Broad Ave. in Memphis.

We lost our storefront shop space. We have, or can get, the materials we prefer for lifecasting. We may venture into other techniques and materials in the future.

 

Lifecasting, or bodycasting, is the craft of molding a living body.

When done by an artist, with care and a critical eye, the result is an artwork of lasting beauty.

I started lifecasting in 1986, partly to prove I could cast 'anything.' I use the direct plaster molding technique, and most of my sculptures are cast in glass-reinforced Hydrocal plaster. I also cast in concrete and plastic resin, because plaster cannot survive for long outdoors.  Other longlasting materials are available.

This site will acquaint you with my art, my methods, and my models.

You may purchase most of the works shown or commission a piece of yourself or a loved one.

I helped edit the Wikipedia article on lifecasting.

 

This site used to be known as Lifecast-art but the domain got away from me when it was pirated by one Aussie Nick Bolton who offered to sell it back but was unwilling to actually give me a bill of sale - so BEWARE.
