Bad Splinter

This is one of those pieces that evolved from the original pose. My daughter, Tiare, modeled for this piece.

Adrift

The model for this sculpture sat on a pedestal.  Her head was facing the opposite direction.  Adding the texture of the hair and cloth helped to create some shadows and contrasting textures.  I like the floating feeling that I have achieved in my last few female figures and which I will probably explore in upcoming pieces. Year completed: 2012 Material: terra cotta Dimensions: 19 inches high, 12 inches wide, 12 inches deep Availability: available in bronze upon request, enquire for details...

Hamana Kalili

This piece was commissioned by the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie, Hawaii. The sculpture is in recognition of Hamana Kalili, the orginator of the shaka sign owing to losing his three middle fingers in an industrial accident. He is famous and remembered in Hawaii for his work in the community and setting up the Hukilau Lu’au, the precursor to the Polynesian Cultural Center. The timeline for this piece was extremely tight. I was given 3 months to sculpt, cast, ship and install the piece in Hawaii. This cut my actual clay work time down to 4 weeks. To have it sculpting and delivered...
