Wickerson Studios' most exciting commission to date!

By collaborating with Wickerson Studios, Zahner was able to exactly replicate the 197 aluminum festoons, tassels, rosettes and trim castings. These were produced using aluminum casting in 3000 pounds of resin sand molds at the Kansas City Art Institute by Michael Wickerson, sculpture chair at KCAI. Two KCAI alumni and one student (Keyan Alemifar, Piers Watson, and Joey Williams) were also involved in the project, and would see the decorative elements from casting, to finishing, to delivery at Zahner’s plant.
