Bronze

Standing over eleven feet tall, this monumental abstract sculpture is unique in several ways. It is comprised of a combination of cast and fabricated bronze plate. This piece was designed to dominate the large garden of this horse-lover’s estate without being too solid or “clunky”. The planes and forms basically follow the equine’s bone and muscle structure.

Sculpted from photographs of the recently deceased horse-trainer. I selected this working pose because most people who knew him – knew him sitting on a horse wearing his Broncos cap, cell-phone on hip.

Two small, yet lovely busts for the Kushnick residence in New York City. A good example of how markings can really set a piece off.

The multiple world grand champion fine harness horse comes to life in bronze. The harness detail on this piece took as long as the horse itself. To be installed in the American Saddlebred Museum.

Bronze

This special commission was sculpted in a very large, one-half life size scale. The client wanted both stallions in the same piece. I used a spiral as the basic element which ties the two horses together while adding movement.

This large piece is endowed with a wild and spontaneous feel. The treatment is “looser”, thus communicating an immediacy to the sculpting and allowing the materials to work.

This special commission was a fascinating challenge. The client wanted it to express the joy she felt when riding, yet embody a few diverse elements. I enjoyed this piece because it allowed me to take a bit of an artistic journey in a different direction.
