“Flamingos present a wonderful opportunity for a study of textures and shapes. The composition, itself, replays memories of my son queued for takeoff in his F16, hence the name “Flight Line”.”
“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.”

“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,
Children of our,
show others their way.

“The Secretary Bird is graceful in flight but prefers to spend most of its time on the plains of Africa running after prey which are mainly snakes. It is, by nature, a solitary bird but does hunt more effectively with its life mate. One may stomp or beat its wings on the ground to disorientate the victim while the other brings home the bacon. I was fortunate on one occasion in Africa to see this over-sized hawk which is quite rare and protected by law.”
As written about “Snow Monkeys”: Macaque is the common name for any of about 13 species of Old World Monkeys that are found primarily in Asia. The Japanese Macaque, also called Snow Monkey, lives only in southern Japan. Sherry saw these monkeys on 3′ – 6′ incense burners made out of stone in the mountains of Japan several years ago and was inspired to create the sculpture, “Snow Monkeys”. The Japanese Macaque is protected by the Japanese government and symbolizes the wisdom of Budda…See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil. The lantern was designed from something Sherry saw. She took liberties with the design to fit with, and be complimentary to, her composition. It does not convey a specific meaning.
