Every piece begins as a clay sculpture. The finished piece can either be kiln-fired or be used to create a synthetic mold that I use to cast the sculpture in bronze or other materials. Molds can be re-used so copies can be made for family members or other needs. A piece I named Oscar was duplicated to make matching Owl lamps.
I love to embellish portraits with extras like clothing, hats, or other accessories and I'll be happy to discuss ways to work your ideas into the design. I enjoy doing pets as well as figures and reliefs and price those individually.
| Artist's Statement ~|
I love being a Portrait Sculptor. The feel of the clay in my hands exhilarates me as I sculpt the features, adding a little clay here or taking some clay away there until a person slowly emerges. A face is more than flesh and bone and muscle though; the face is the Window to the Soul - the Spirit of Life itself. My goal in every portrait is to capture that essence and bring the piece to life, giving the viewer the sensation of the subject's presence.
