Eight years ago, head sculptor Desneige Meyer began to apply her formal training from the Alberta College of Art and Design to her love for life casting, literally setting the human form and its emotions in stone. Today, Meyer runs Memory Castings along with fellow sculptor Kristina Rowse, graphic designer Cass Collins, and studio cat Gilmore. This troupe of talented artists forms tangible symbols of life and love by designing custom castings, whether crafting a plaster mould of a pregnant belly or making a cement impression of the concept of filial piety. Their casting process envelops body parts in safe, comfortable sheaths of liquid rubber or seaweed-based, hypoallergenic dental alginate, capturing a precise 3-D image before immortalizing memories in pourings of stone, hydrostone, concrete, resin, or cold-cast metal.
