One of the many fascinating attributes of concrete is its astonishing adaptability to a seemingly unlimited range of purposes- from the construction of dams, involving the use of millions of cubic yards, to intricate sculptures requiring only a few pounds. These sculptures were shown at the Royal Academy Summer exhibition in London in 1958. The textures and effects obtained on the statues were made by casting techniques not entirely unlike those which are being employed on an increasing number of construction projects where it is desired that concrete fulfill the double functions of load carrying and providing attractive finished surfaces. Color for the statues was achieved a number of ways. For many subjects the natural bloom with which the cast emerged from the mold gives a much to be desired patina to the finished work. Oils, specials washes, the use of colored aggregates, and imaginative employment of various waxes and dye powders made the possibilities literally unlimited.
