I've been making belly casts for pregnant and non-pregnant women since 1992. I love seeing the look of delight and wonder on a woman's face when she gets to see her own body, captured in plaster of paris for the first time. I have instructed people on how to make their own bellycasts and cast them in my comfortable, private studio in North Portland. I also teach bodycasting to individuals and small groups a few times a year. In addition to plaster of paris bellycasts, I have also sculpted bellycasts out of concrete, resin, latex, clay, porcelain, and paper mache. These sculptures now live in my clients' gardens and grace the walls of their homes.
I have also made bodycasts for the exhibition, Bodyworlds. You can see the process and final results on my Flickr stream.
I would be honored to capture your torso in a plaster of paris cast.
