“Echoes” show at top / left, has been enlarged to 3 feet from the original model. Second photo is of the fresh bronze cast being finished for either a high polish or a light patina. Echoes may be further enlarged at some point or possibly carved in Marble.
“King and Queen” original carvings shown, has been commissioned at 6 feet in bronze for a client in San Francisco. The client’s goal was to have two sculptures that were related in form- placed across from each other like sentinels. We finally decided on King and Queen as the best piece for this setting. The next step is to create full size enlargements as a basis for mold making.
My goal is for each owner of my sculpture to feel the same thrill as when I created it. To achieve this requires that the utmost attention be given to every aspect of the process; Enlargement, patination, choice and size of the base and finally, flawless-on time installation. Because all my artistic talent or musings won’t matter if the sculpture wobbles on the base or the patina of the bronze isn’t just right. Having said that here is a bit of my musing…
I find that sculpture is still and calm, yet filled with possibilities that occur and resonate within the eye of the beholder. The inspiration for my work touches on the art of many periods as well as the constant influence provided by nature and our relationship to it. There is a thread that runs through our collective past, and to tap into or add to it, enables a work of art to take on a timeless quality. This element makes a prehistoric cave painting or sculpture feel as vibrant as if it were created yesterday.
