Stratton Sculpture Studios makes waste molds for one-off plaster castings, plaster piece molds, molds for architectural restoration, and rubber molds of every scale on any original material: stone, water clay, plasticine, metal, plaster, wax, cement, terra-cotta, and found objects.
Requiring the highest level of skill and expertise, poured rubber molds are our speciality. Poured rubber molds are vastly superior to brush-up molds due to the perfect fit in the plaster mother mold, tight registration, and exact reproduction of surface detail. Rubber molds sections are separated with our recognizable zig-zag registration cut. Stratton Sculpture Studios has made hundreds of poured rubber molds of every scale, and frequently pours large work.
Examples of large, monolithic poured rubber molds are Clete Sheild’s 16' tall Vaquero Monument, Steve Layne's 10' Joe Frazier monument, and the sections of Hans Haacke's 14' tall Gift Horse. Examples of our large-scale plaster piece molds are Simone Leigh’s 16’ Brick House, and Stratton Sculpture Studios over-life-size Dressage Horse commission.
