The complex sculpture above was made from General Plastic’s LAST-A-FOAM® FR-6712 by sculptor Joy Taylor of Newport Beach, CA.
The bond-ability of this LAST-A-FOAM® product, plus the large block sizes available, made this project easy. The original pattern was constructed from several 24" x 30" x 48" pieces of 12-lb. foam.
General Plastics LAST-A-FOAM® FR-6706 was used to create mold patterns for terracotta sculptures. The sculptures decorate columns at the front of a Los Angeles Department of Transportation building.
These pictures were taken at Gladding-McBean in Lincoln, CA, where the terracotta pieces were manufactured.
"I really enjoyed working with your foam", said Laura Larson, sculptor from Los Angeles, CA. "I had been working with pressed foam—the kind that balls-up and snows everywhere when you cut it. Working with your foam was a much different experience that required and enabled more finesse. It was perfect for this project…Thanks."
