Berries in the Snow

Edition 35                       12″H X 12″W X 6″D                       $1,800

“Just beyond my studio window, grows a splendid Mountain Ash.  It produces berries that tenaciously cling to its stems throughout the fierce winds of approaching winter.  The fruit will remain long after the leaves have fallen and decayed under the snow.  The deep red against a background of white creates a visual richness on a gray day attracting many.  Turkeys wobble on the thinner branches trying to pick at berries beyond their reach.  To the side, pheasants feast, while chickadees dart in and out.  The chattering of squirrels completes the ensemble.  Simply, a visual gift to me, but of immense importance to those needing energy to endure the cold months ahead.”

“A Slight gold reflection lingers, scraping the last of the day’s long shadow.  A piercing whistle is returned from across the canyon, a rattling of sabers.  Guttural sounds of raging passion and eyes red with territorial mania express the need to dominate and procreate.  Bluff is called.  One not yet strong enough will soon be sulking in the safety of a stand of crowded pines where he’ll blow and plot revenge for another day.”

There brushed with yellow and red, a reflection lingers,
smoothing the scant shadows of the day.
A piercing whistle is returned from across the canyon,
ranking dominance coveted.
The reactive thrashing of an evergreen,
incites immature courage.

Deep cavernous rumbling, accented by high-pitched bugles,
perforates the air.
A young challenger succinct in his determination,
driven by the right to the ascendancy of power, strides forth.
Sabers clash, big based horns declare
the doctrine of strength.

Nearby, clusters of dense aspens,
covering for one not yet strong enough.
Sulking, blowing in the safety of the stand of trees,
plots this youngster, revenge for another day.
All aggression is consequential, bluff is called,
the seasons pass, an interlude, a day will come.

“I had always seen gorilla sculptures done on all fours with that mean posture and attitude.  They are not at all like that.  Although they do have a formidable look on their faces and sculpture can’t get around that, they are not in the least bit aggressive.  They are a passive, kind, shy introverted animal.  I designed this piece expressly for a zoo setting.  I made a real conscious effort to design the Gorilla so that kids would not fear it and would climb on it and sit on its lap.  I wanted it to lie in quiet repose.”

Herd of Birds

Edition 35                      14″H X 38″W X 8″D                      SOLD OUT

“The challenge in designing Herd of Birds was to create a lyrical, perhaps even playful, mood while still maintaining the ostriches’ integrity.
“For a seemingly awkward animal, the ostrich is extremely graceful at full speed.”

Upon the stones
ten thousand years sooner than I,
Historians were scripting annals
of birds that run.

Shared is the desire to record
this wizardry of nature,
this ancient family of the savanna.
And, in the telling, images of
beaks agape hawking their journey
Sailing a sea of sand and wind.

Scratched in stone,
forms in bronze
Unabridged by space or subsequence,
The need remains,
we recombine.
Children of our,
show others their way.

Wood Ducks on Still Water

Edition 35                      21″H X 77″W X 22″D                      Call For Price

“My studio is built upon the banks of a secluded pond where I have the good fortune to see many varieties of birds and animals.  One special day I observed the most beautiful of all waterfowl, the North American Wood Duck.  This was a special event as they are not very social and several years may go by without a migration gracing our pond.  I was granted a long visit while they rested and preened upon cottonwood deadfall at water’s edge giving me leisure time to develop this sculpture titled Wood Ducks on Still Water.”
