BRONZE
Bronze sculpture is not a direct method in which to work. The piece must be made of clay, plaster or wax or something that a mold can be made from. There is a lot of "process" from making the mold, pouring in the molten metal, cleaning the sculpture and adding a patina. Because of the nature of casting, most sculptors rely on foundries. I prefer more control and immediacy in doing my work.


The Goddess

The Southwest Indian's Pueblo story telling doll was my inspiration for this sculpture. The small figures clinging to the large mother figure represent the youngsters need a for strong and protective adult.



The Brood


Faith, Hope & Determination
Bronze

Overcoming obstacles is always a challenge. Sometimes it is easy, sometimes difficult, sometimes help is needed and sometimes it is just impossible.


Harmonic Motion

I wanted the dancing figures to be animated and come alive. In this photograph, they seem to be cavorting on the sand.


 

Relaxation
Bronze

It was my intention to use the elegance of flowing lines to define he repose of the figure. It reminds me of the fluid movement of waves.


The Barrier

The figures can be facing each other or turn their backs on each other or on the same side of the barrier. It is up to the viewer to decide on the relationship of the man and the woman.


Balance of Power


Flying High
Bronze

With the use of metal, there is no problem in making elongated shapes and extensions in space. In contrast, the wood carving of the same subject is much more compact.

 

Flying High
Wax

The close-up of the original shows the beautiful color of the petroleum wax. After the wax sculpture is finished, it goes to the foundry for the casting and patina process.
