Curious about an artist’s process? This video comes to you from our archives and showcases how a sculpture is made, taking you all the way from the clay form to the finished bronze piece.
The star and narrator in the film is our own preparator, Jeff Rudolph, who is an accomplished artist and sculptor in his own right, here in Cody.
Watch below as Jeff takes us step by step through the process of creating a small rabbit sculpture titled, Nestled In, 2004.
Interested in more of Jeff’s work? Please visit our online collections. And if you happen to come through Cody, look for Jeff’s public sculptures. He sculpted the grizzly bears, which can be found next to various businesses in town, and a sculpture of Buffalo Bill, titled Spirit of Cody, which stands in our city park.
