Sculpture

  Sculpture

I created these sculptures while I pursued my BVA degree from Georgia State University. Although previously part of my private collection, I am now making some of these pieces available for sale. I thoroughly enjoyed foundry work and did a lot of it, with some fabrication, while in school. My major was sculpture and right behind it, my interest in printmaking.




“Union of Opposites” – Skateboard

P.48(B)

A union of opposites, being the sun and the moon. Cast bronze with fiber roller skate wheels.




“Union of Opposites” – Underside

P.49(B)

The wheels on this piece were from a fiber-wheel roller skate cut in half. It’s how they were made in the early 1960s; we cut a metal wheel skate in half and nailed it to a board.

Dimensions:  24 3/4″ long x  12 3/8″ wide x  3 1/4″ tall
Cost $2,500.00




“Moon, Venus, on Earth” – Skateboard

P.50(B)




“Moon, Venus, on Earth” – Underside

P.51(B)

The wheels connected under her head are at a slope. If you were to ride such a skateboard, you would find that when you lean to the left, the skateboard would turn to the right. She has a mind of her own. (I do not suggest that you should actually ride a bronze skateboard.)

Dimensions: 28 1/4″ long x  10 3/4″ wide x  4 1/2″ tall
Cost $2,500.00




“Someone’s Mother”

P.52(B)

Bronze casting.

Dimensions: 8″ long x  4 1/2″ wide x  7 1/2″ tall
Cost $400.00

“Entropy Awaiting” – First view

P.64(B)

This piece was constructed of bronze pieces, steel tubes, and wood forms. Felt flocking was applied to all surfaces except for the front side of the bronze castings.

I did not completely understand the word entropy at the time, but liked the way the title felt to me. I saw it as relating to our earth–in a closed system, such as it is–gradually declining. In my sculpture, I was showing God’s angel with wings pointing down to earth, bringing a message about the need to wake up and get oneself in order before making the next transition called Death.

Dimensions: 6′ high x 4′ around
Display only – Item sold




“Entropy Awaiting” – Second view

P.65(B)




“Entropy Awaiting” – Third view

P.66(B)


This was the first piece that I worked on in wax. I wanted to show a union of opposites where consciousness was emerging out of the unconscious. I began this piece with the abstract face (the unconscious), and then created a realistic arm with hand and finger pointing down (the conscious). From there, I let the unconscious manifest and come to consciousness. It continued to evolve until I perfected the concept of God speaking through the Angelic Kingdom, contacting humanity on Earth. This sculpture took me two quarters at university to complete. I feel that this piece came into manifestation due to my openness to the unconscious, of which the largest part is the knowledge in and of God and the Spiritual Kingdom.
