Sculpture

With today’s blog we will finally put some content on my sculpture page. Here are some views of my earliest efforts.

Sculpture is all about expression through shape. Modelling, as opposed to carving, is a more fluid and additive process.

Carving is a more controlled and subtractive process. Both methods can lead to forms that inspire.

Sculpture strives to express its shape from every viewpoint.

A small, decaying monument to ancient glory…


Dusting off my mallet and chisels,

your humble,
