Leo Mol Sculpture Garden
Combining artistic beauty with a natural setting.
Save some time to stroll the magnificent Leo Mol Sculpture Garden while visiting Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, this beloved garden offering a quiet retreat to enjoy the works of master sculptor Dr. Leo Mol.
These meticulously landscaped gardens feature Dr. Mol's bronze sculptures mixed in with the flowers, benches, and fountains. The park was created after Dr. Mol generously donated his works, as well as the Leo Mol gallery and Leo Mol Schoolhouse Studio. The school studio shows how bronze sculpture is created with in-depth examples.
Mol himself used the Lost Wax method to create his masterpieces, a process that starts out with clay modeled on a rebar and wood structure. The structure is then covered in liquid rubber, then plaster to create a mold. The cast and mold are then separated, then melted beeswax is pressed into the mold. Finally, cement is poured, leaving a perfectly cast statue once complete. Learn more about this process, view works done like this, and enjoy a nice afternoon in the garden!
