CUSTOM BRONZE STATUES & BRONZE SCULPTURES

by sculptor Austin Weishel of Honorable Sculptures

Austin discovered sculpting after visiting his grandparents in Prescott, AZ, where they took him on a tour of a local bronze foundry. There, he was introduced to the process of casting clay sculptures into bronze. The owner of a bronze factory in Prescott challenged him to make something out of a ball of clay. He told him if it was any good, he would cast it in bronze. Intrigued and inspired, he took the clay home to Colorado and he began his first bronze sculpture. After several months, he returned to Arizona with a finished clay sculpture of a fireman. Impressed with the sculpture, he cast it in bronze and offered him a summer internship. After interning, he chose sculpting as a career.

He decided to sculpt first responders due to his interest in the police and fire service. In high school, he worked as a student firefighter for the Loveland Fire Department for two and a half years; he subsequently joined Loveland’s student police program. At 18 years of age, he successfully completed one of Colorado’s Fire Academies to become a firefighter. Soon after, he was certified in First Aid, CPR and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Wild Land fire fighting, HAZMAT and numerous other certifications.

AUSTIN WEISHEL IS A SCULPTOR WHO CREATES CUSTOM, BRONZE SCULPTURES & STATUES, INCLUDING POLICE, FIRE & MILITARY MONUMENTS & MEMORIALS.
