Here is some detail of a large river cast.

There is a log process of cleaning and removing bits of material trapped in the plaster. Many hours with a pair of fine tweezers. It almost becomes a forensic process. Or as I see it a conservation aspect similar to an archeological preserving.
I like the timeless quality of the casts. They capture a moment in time, but it could be from any time in history. From the first time people discovered the river estuary to today, the present moment in time.
