While many of my in progress pieces have already been put on reserve by enthusiastic collectors, please do let me know if any sing to you. I can easily add you to the wait list for particular sculptures and when they are complete, if they become available, I will let you know.
Specifically regarding the Garden Party Series, early collectors are waiting until all the pieces are fired and finished to make their final selections and groupings, so they can see how the finished works relate to each other. There may well be a few of the little critters available for you to select from. And if not in this grouping, more are coming...
To be added to the wait list, please contact me here and also indicate which sculptures you may be interested in following updates on: Sculpture Wait List
Tiger Man: life-sized water based clay, 34"x 18"x 18" Stage: sculpting complete, dry, awaiting firing. Status: Available I sculpted the figure and Colin added the surface motifs. Inspired by heraldic imagery and paintings on the ceiling of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the designs start at Tiger Man's upper back with a face of a tiger. Various animals of prey, including boar, nilgai, antelope, ibis and other birds move in free flowing designs away from the tiger, spiraling over his upper arms and lower back.
The Garden Party
The Garden Party is a new grouping of "desk-sized" humanimals, created to be placed in interactive poses with one another. I imagine them in a garden on a warm summer day, chatting and enjoying each other's company, just before tea time.
Boaris and Leo Stage: drying Status: Reserved, pending finishing Boaris and Leo are a pair enjoying a day in the park. Boaris reads his favorite story from "Savanna Tales: Boaris and Leo's Awesome Adventure" while Leo listens and idly draws in the sand.
Cape Buffalo Raconteur - water-based clay, 9.5"x 8"x 9.5" Stage: dry, awaiting firing Status: Reserved, pending finishing "Amusing the ladies" with his tales of derring-do
Tapir Girl - water-based clay, 6"x 18"x 9" Stage: dry, awaiting firing Status: Reserved, pending finishing Languidly lounging as she listens to Cape Buffalo Man's stories
Barasingha Lady - water-based clay, 11"x 6"x 7" Stage: dry, awaiting firing Status: Reserved, pending finishing Barasingha Lady mirrors Cape Buffalo Man's pose as she interacts intently with him.
Tiger Boy - water-based clay, 9"x 8"x 8" Stage: dry, awaiting firing Status: Available Tiger Boy watches on, perhaps not entirely amused that Cape Buffalo Man is getting all the attention, or maybe he's just rapt with interest in the story (surely, it's not that he's hungry... ;)
The Lady Valkyrie - Water-based clay, 18"x 7"x 9" Stage: dry, awaiting firing Status: Reserved, pending finishing The Lady Valkyrie flies freely as she carries her own wings with her. Her headdress is based on one of our Lady Amherst Pheasants, SweetPea. You can see the clay support just near her right leg. This will help to stabilize her weight through the drying and firing processes.
And on the other side of the studio...
Colin is currently enlarging his "Wind in the Waves" sculpture. The first sculpture in the edition will be installed in a stunning and perfect setting - Sula will be dancing in a custom water feature with the backdrop of mountains in Southern New Mexico. Stage: sculpting near completion, next step is making the mold Status: available for pre-cast pricing, contact us for more images
