Balancing BoysInquire about this piece
Inspired by a group of neighborhood kids frolicking on the fallen limbs of a wind blown cottonwood tree, the three balancing boys can be displayed on a natural or bronze log, large boulders, or an existing ledge or wall. The three boys are immortalized at ages 4, 5 and 7.
Meet the Artist
I came to the art game late in life, completing my first life-size sculpture of a child in 1997, discovering a niche capturing likenesses and realistic representations. Since then I’ve created over sixty different life-size sculptures, many originating from commissions. My creative process begins with composition research, followed by armature building and sculpting with a plastilene modeling clay. I sculpt primarily from life and detailed photographs of my subjects. My finished clay sculpture is molded with silicone and cast in bronze using the time-honored lost wax foundry process
