The Mold Room

CaproniA recent visit to Skylights Studios in Woburn, Mass. by the New England Sculptors Associaton (NESA) was hosted by the owner, sculptor Robert Shure. Bob explained the history of his business, and how it has incorporated several significant historic collections from the Boston area, including the PP Caproni and Brother inventory of plaster molds, some made from original 19th century sculpture and some from classical sculpture in Europe. Bob’s personal collection includes many examples of 19th century American vernacular sculptor John Rogers and other gems. This photo is a peek at just one of the mold rooms.
