Adrift

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...

Inclination

I created this piece quite a while ago but only recently completed it. I like the silky feeling of the skin. I am happy too because I made a good start with the piece but it took a few more years of experience to bring it to a good conclusion. Year completed: 2016 Material: Bronze Dimensions: 9 inches high, 6 inches wide, 6 inches deep Availability: Limited edition bronze $2400...

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...

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...

Liz Reclining

This sculpture was created in 2003 at the modeling session in Alpine, Utah.  The model, Liz, was a swimmer with an athletic build but more rounded like swimmers tend to be.  She fell into this pose easily.  I altered my sculpture compared to the model by turning the hips more.  I did not articulate the face, hands or feet because I wanted to emphasize the beauty of the torso and give it more of a landscape feel.   Year completed: 2003 Material: terracotta for bronze Dimensions: 7 inches high, 8.5 inches wide, 17.5 inches deep Availability: available in bronze upon request, enquire for...

The Veil was Rent

The Veil was Rent

  The Veil was Rent refers to the passage in the bible which tells of the veil of the temple being rent during the crucifixion of Jesus.  The model was a very muscular male dancer who was able to hold this pose for me. The piece was part of a Phoenix, Arizona play, called Cry Tiger, a play about the life of a sculptor.  My pieces were used as the work of the sculptor. The sculpture was made to look partially finished, in oil based clay, so the actor could pretend to work on it.  During one part of the play the sculptor, in frustration, pulls the head off the piece, much to...
