Bad Splinter

This is one of those pieces that evolved from the original pose. My daughter, Tiare, modeled for this piece. The girl in the sculpture is wearing a Deel or traditional Mongolian clothing.  I admire the unique life style of these people and their simple life on the high plains of Asia. Year completed: 2008 Material: terra cotta Dimensions: 10 inches high, 8 inches wide, 9 inches deep Availability: limited edition bronze...

Umoja

Yoko

Yoko derives her name from the model, Yoko, who has modeled for me for several other sculptures as well as this one.   Other models I have used have a difficult time sitting on their feet like this but it was no trouble for her.   Having first sculpted Yoko nude, it was several days later that I went ahead and put the clothes on this piece. During those days I formed in my head how it would look and, to tell the truth, it looked good! I would picture in my mind the sculpture and shadow sculpt it, like a boxer in training. When I entered my studio to finish the piece, I had a sense that...

The Fishmonger’s Wife

The “Fishmonger’s Wife” was inspired by the model we used, who naturally took this pose.  This sort of defiant stance matched her personality and demeanor.  The sculpture was originally done nude and I added the clothing, base and title as I so felt inclined. Year completed: 2005 Material: terracotta, cast in bronze Dimensions: 32 inches high, 14 inches wide, 14 inches deep Availability: limited edition bronze...

Kisses and Dreams

Kisses and Dreams

  Kisses and Dreams was created from an actual model of a mother (Julie) and her newborn baby.  The pose involved the baby sitting in her mother’s lap with the mother’s legs extended out in front of her.  I noticed that during the break Julie would bring the baby up to her and kiss her.  I liked this pose better than the one we were sculpting.  I also brought the legs in to create a tighter form. Year completed: 2006 Material: terracotta, cast in bronze Dimensions: 20 inches high, 7 inches wide, 10 inches deep Availability: limited edition of 29, available in bronze for...

Kimono

Kimono was created using Yoko, the same Japanese model used for my seated Yoko sculpture.  I wanted a standing piece similar to the first Yoko and was happy with the way it turned out. Year completed: 2006 Material: terra cotta, cast in bronze Dimensions: 37 inches high, 9 inches wide, 11 inches deep Availability: limited edition bronze $9000...
