E ACH SCULPTURE TELLS AN INTIMATE STORY
The task of creating an enduring sculpture of a loved one can be a challenge. Not knowing how and where to begin can compound this frustration. Together, we discuss what you would like your sculpture to convey - is my child serious, athletic, intellectual, lover of nature, etc. We will not to be too specific as to create a box- but rather, have several ideas of how you can have your child sculpted, with timelines of one year or less.

We begin the creative process by taking a number of photographs of different poses of your child, in several outfits. Usually one pose stands out as an inspirational and animated composition that sums up the personality of the child- often, you already have this photo. Please remember, the best designs are discovered in the process, not necessarily preconceived at the onset; and usually the child will strike this unique pose.

Next, your child is sculpted over a two to three month period. A final sitting from life is arranged, and the approved statue is cast in bronze over a four month period. Once back from the foundry, the statue is now ready for mounting on a marble, granite or concrete surface. Holes are drilled into the base material, and the threaded rods are screwed up into the nuts hidden inside the bare feet or shoes. After curing, the statue stands proudly on its base.
