All of Dean's sculptures are hot cast bronze and limited editions unless specified .

Dean Rusling established the Chalkos Art Foundry fourteen years ago, producing fine bronze art castings for other sculptors, as well as many commissions for sculptors. Finally Dean realized he also had a talent for sculpting and has been producing quality pieces in bronze that are of the highest standard. Rusling has won three Pine Rivers Arts Alliance Art Awards with bronzes of aquatic life: a mud crab, sea-turtle and platypus.
