For Nano Lopez, the entire sculpting process begins with his initial conceptual sketches.
He then creates a small working model in clay. Following that, he will then sculpt the piece actual size.
In his artistic process, Nano integrates organic textures and human-made objects into his
bronzes to create pieces of art that reflect the same depth and richness he sees in the world around him.
The sculptures unique elements become part ofthe final piece in several ways. They may be embedded,
applied to the surface, or even indented in the actual clay.
“The transformation from clay to bronze has always been magical to me.”
