A master of “lost wax” casting, Jon Lash developed the “lost wood method” of casting in order to create complex metal compositions. Initially, the piece is designed in wood. He then casts each component using either a ceramic shell or sand mold. These elements are then welded together to simulate the original wood relief. Currently, Jon Lash is the Director of the Digital Atelier at the Johnson Atelier.
Jon Lash received his BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and is represented in the collections of the Hewlett Packard Corporation, Cupertino, CA; New Jersey State Museum, Trenton, NJ; and United Jersey Bank, Princeton, NJ.
