No Room at the Inn

The relief sculpture “No Room at the Inn” helps to tie in the Christmas story by showing Mary and Joseph walking dejectedly past the entrance of an inn with the inn keeper looking on through the curtain that veils the entrance.  It was a challenge to get all the figures to work together, but I am happy with the way it turned out. Year completed: 2012 Material: bronze and hydrostone (a gypsum cement) Dimensions: 7 inches high, 5 inches wide, 1 inch deep Availability: Enquire...

GCA Competition

This is a piece I did for a modeling competition at the Grand Central Academy in Queens, New York. We sculpted 8 hours a day for 5 days with a live model. Although I didn’t win this one (I have won other similar competitions) it was an enjoyable as well as grueling competition, meeting sculptors from all over the world and fun to be in New York. Year completed: 2015 Material: Clay Dimensions: 32 inches high, 5 inches wide, 4 inches deep...

Fallen Soldier (Orem City Veterans Memorial)

Fallen Soldier (Orem City Veterans Memorial)

In 2003 I was able to do a life-sized veterans memorial for our local city cemetery. The committee wanted a nurse helping a soldier. I obliged them by creating a piece that had echoes of an earlier piece I did called, “Christ Healing the Blind Man”. I liked working with the elderly veterans and hearing some of their stories. Many of them died soon after in the years following the completion of the project. Year completed: 2003 Material: bronze Dimensions: 48 inches high, 52 inches wide Availability:...

Ignominious

Ignominious

  “Ignominious” refers to a verse from the Bible, Samuel 17:23: “…though he died an ignominious death”.  This sculpture was featured in the Phoenix, Arizona play called Cry Tiger, a play about the life of a sculptor.  My pieces were used as the work of the sculptor.  This sculpture, “Ignominious”, appeared near the end of the play as the sculptor’s magnum opus.  I was happy with the way they displayed it and the way it was lit on stage did make it look spectacular. Year completed: 2009 Material: Hydrostone Dimensions: 17 inches high, 26 inches wide,...

Due Date

“Due Date” was modeled by the same girl who modeled for “Kisses and Dreams”. She was in her 9th month when she posed.  The baby she is waiting to have is the one in the “Kisses and Dreams” sculpture.  She wanted to wear something around her waist so I incorporated it into the sculpture. Year completed: 2005 Material: Terracotta Dimensions: 31 inches high, 7 inches wide, 8 inches deep. Availability: limited edition of 29, available in bronze for...

The Dreamer

Jessica was the model for “The Dreamer”. The first thing that attracted me to this pose was the torso and prominent hips. The muscular back with its protruding scapula and the way the legs rest on each other are also highlights of this piece.  Year completed: 2012 Material: terra cotta Dimensions: 10 inches high, 17 inches wide, 9 inches deep Availability: available in bronze upon request, enquire for details  ...

Best of State Award

Best of State Award

The Best of State award was commissioned in 2001 following my first place finish at the National Sculpture Society sculpture competition in Philadelphia. The main thought behind the piece was to create a beautiful, uplifting sculpture and that when people saw it, they would want to have the award for themselves. To create this piece, I first did several quick clay sketches. Once one of the sketches was decided upon, I made a much larger version using a male model, who was a dancer. I then did a final version free hand without the model so I could adjust proportions according to how I felt...
