Two recent portrait busts created for the Portland Valley Scottish Rite Statuary Hall at their 113-year old Center in downtown Portland, Oregon. We integrated digital scanning technology to capture physical features of both the former and current Sovereign Grand Inspectors General. After creating a foam foundation, clay was added and fine details rendered. Additional photographs and dimensional castings were made of many of the organization’s symbols, which we carefully incorporated into the sculptures. Form there, elegant bronze castings were created.
