In the Studio Today, October Twentieth, 2015

I'm currently sculpting this life-size bronze for this winter season.

This double life-size bronze is going to a new development in New York 

 This ¾ life-size bronze will be ready for this winter season.

The first bronze casting of this skull will go to a private collector in OKlahoma City

The first casting of this 1.5 x life-size bronze will go to a Bay Area collector's new home in Palm Desert. It will be finished in about a year and a half.

Early steps to Resculpt "Grace"

I lost molds in a foundry fire. A Physicist in Virginia bought this casting of "Grace". I must make a mold of it, then repatinate before she goes to her new home. I will cast a positive in the mold and then begin resculpting. There is shrinkage throughout the lost wax bronze casting process, so I will use the positive as an armature and resculpt it bigger than the bronze in order to allow for the shrinkage.
