A portrait sculpture begins with an initial modelling session of about two hours. The subject is carefully photographed from all sides to provide a frame of reference and the sculpting begins.
    After the initial session, Maurice does much of his work from the photographs. In most cases, the subject sits for several more two-hour sessions, usually scheduled once or twice a week. (The sessions are timed to meet the subject's needs.) During a session, the subject is free to sit comfortably and talk.
   Once the piece is complete, it is taken to a foundry, where a mold is made and the piece is cast in one of several materials: bronze, bonded bronze (a mixture of bronze and synthetic materials), or hydrocal (a rigid plaster.)
