The dedication

Caption: A Treasure Hunt Begins-

Along with the scene of the Mad Hatter, there will be a large story book with the dedication of the sculpture. This sculpture is where the treasure hunt begins, as sculptor Bridgette Mongeon will be hiding 150 different elements within the entire bronze scene. The top of the book shows a rabbit hopping down a hole, move around to the back of the stump and you will find Alice falling, search the stump and you just may find other hidden elements.

There are 150 elements in honor of this years 150th celebration of Lewis Carroll's story. It will be a challenge for visitors to find the 150 elements. Therefore, the artist is creating a second book on this project called Finding Alice-Field Guide. Within the riddles and rhymes of the book, readers will find the clues to find the 150 elements.

March Hare by Bridgette Mongeon

Caption: Morphing a March Hare

The artist uses both digital process and traditional process to create a monumental scene of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party. She has just completed a book on how she and many other artists incorporate these tools in their work. The book titled 3D Technology in Fine Art and Craft: Exploring 3D Printing, Scanning, Sculpting and Milling is published by Focal Press. Those interested in 3D technology can pre-order the book through Amazon and on the publishers website in May. The book debuts September 2015.

Mongeon is writing a new book about her process of creating this sculpture of the Mad Hatter Tea Party. Finding Alice-The Process will be available after the completion of the sculpture in 2016. Shown here is the quick sketch of the March Hare used to present the idea to her client. The maquette or small version of the sculpture is created by hand and 3D scanned into the computer. This file is touched up in the computer. The artist will send this digital file to a company that will enlarge the sculpture and CNC Mill it out in foam (Computer Numerically Controlled). The foam pieces are shipped to the artist's studio. The artist carves more detail in the foam and then adds a fine layer of clay for carving more detail. Once the sculpture is complete, she will place 3D printed hidden objects within the bark of the tree stump and other areas. The sculpture will then go through the traditional process of bronze casting at Shidoni Foundry in New Mexico.

Caption: Finding Humpty Dumpty

Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon will be hiding 150 elements in the large scene of the story book and the Mad Hatter tea party. Here is a glimpse of one of those elements. The artist works with both traditional and digital process. She created Humpty Dumpty in the computer using Zbrush. The artist will 3D print Humpty Dumpty using a 3D printer. The 3D printed Humpty Dumpty will then be embedded in the clay sculpture before it goes through the bronze process.

Humpty Dumpty by sculptor Bridgette MongeonMongeon will be documenting her process of using traditional and digital processes in her new book Finding Alice- The Process. This book is similar to Mongeon's new book 3D Technology in Fine Art and Craft: Exploring 3D Printing, Scanning, Sculpting and Milling that is published by Focal Press, but it will document just the process of creating "Move One Place On." In the second book titled Finding Alice- Field Guide readers will find the clues to find the 150 elements. The sculptor will write these clues in Carrollian style using riddles and rhymes.

Grambling Tiger with artist Bridgette Mongeon

Grambling Tiger MacotCaption: Many know Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon for her numerous portrait commissions as well as her monumental bronze sculptures for universities. Here she stands with a portion of the tiger sculpture created for Grambling State University in Louisiana. Mongeon works with both traditional and digital processes. For example, this tiger was CNC milled (Computer Numerically Controlled) out of foam. She then carves on the foam and adds a thin layer of clay. Mongeon will go through this same process with the Alice in Wonderland Sculpture. She will then 3D print small detailed sculptures, such as Humpty Dumpty and embed them as some of the 150 hidden elements in the scene. The final step in the process is to send the sculpture to Shidoni Foundry in New Mexico to be cast in bronze.

Alice in Wonderland and Sculptor Bridgette MongeonA pensive Alice in Wonderland Sculpted by Bridgette MongeonCaption: Attention to detail is Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon's trademark.

Bridgette finds or makes appropriate costumes. Using friends and neighbors as models, the artist and her photographer/ daughter Christina Sizemore of Diliberto Photo and Design take numerous photographs all around the models. This photographic reference will be very valuable in creating the maquette, refining the digital models for enlarging and also in the final sculpting. The artist will only use the pose of this child. The face of Alice in the monumental sculpture will be the image of her daughter when she was the age of Alice.

Falling Alice in Wonderland shot by Diliberto Photo and Design for Sculptor Bridgette MongeonCaption: How do you capture images of a falling Alice?

It is not advisable to toss children out of the window so that an artist can capture the perfect look for a falling Alice. Instead Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon and her photographer and daughter Christina Sizemore of Diliberto Photo and design shoot both video and stills of Alice jumping on a trampoline. These images will help the artist to sculpt the small Alice that is falling down the hole. The small Alice is one of the 150 hidden elements in the scene.

Caption: Just like Alice, she and her friends now will grow to be 8 feet tall.

The artist moves from a quick digital design to detail maquettes that she 3D scans using a laser scanner. The models are then brought into the scene for one last look. In the next step, Bridgette Mongeon will send them to a computer numerically controlled milling machine that will mill out the images to 8 feet. But there is still much work to do.
