We inhabit the world with the animal kingdom, they are our cousins with whom we share the pain and pleasure of the planet we live on. Ferocious, pathetic, playful and pretentious, we also share their characteristics. In our animal sculptures we seek to capture this common ground.
PROFESSIONS AND HOBBIES
The professions and hobbies we practice shape our lives and alter us. This is emphasized in the group of figures who pose, perspire, lecture us, swing bats and golf clubs. They humorously draw us into their activities, make us swing their heads and open hidden doors to expose their hidden secrets and surprises.
Our Universal Figures embrace images of painters, artists and great thinkers we admire. In each we look to express what motivates the figures to be what they are.
Large sculptures keep us busy but we allow time for making beauty in miniature – objects of art to wear. When we see our jewelry displayed on the body of its owner as a statement of their choice, we feel the pleasure of a silent bond, a little secret shared with a stranger.
