Sculpture Enlargement & Reduction

Skylight Studios has made accurate enlarged or reduced clay models of its own designs and sculptures as well as of well-known works in many museums and private collections. Time-honored techniques, such as the 3-point measuring system, templating and more recently laser-scanning, have been used. Reduction models of many iconic sculptures have been modeled for museums and institutions including “Little Dancer of Fourteen Years” by Edgar Degas, the Lincoln Memorial by Daniel Chester French, “Appeal to the Great Spirit” by Cyrus Dallin, “John Hancock” by Paul Manship, and the “Winged Victory of Samothrace.”
 

Enlargement of the Winged Victory of Samothrace

          

Utilizing a combination of modern and traditional techniques, we enlarged the famous “Winged Victory of Samothrace” to 9 feet tall working from small replicas. The finished cast was permanently installed in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House.
