Post image for A Thoughtful Gift For Your Special Riley Doctor

One of my latest creations, a one-of-a-kind sculpture featuring children sitting in their famous red wagons at Riley Hospital. I have enjoyed the logo design for a long time. It reminds me of some of the drawings my son has created. I hand forged all the parts to create this work of art, transforming an abstract graphic into a physical reality.

This sculpture could be given as a wonderful gift to one of the top doctors, or someone special at Riley. The size is 7.5 L x 3.5 w x 5.5 h, (2 lbs.), painted forged metal. If interested , please feel free to contact me.

Hoosier Salon’s 89th Annual Exhibition   August 13th- September 28, 2013 at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center. 450 West Ohio Street, Indianapolis, IN

My latest work “Happiness” can be seen in the show this year. It is a 34 inch tall cherry wood carving. My son is aware that the sculpture could receive an award once judged. Win or lose, he made my day by creating his own award design and surprised me with this drawing. He said, “This is for you daddy, I know your art piece will win.” Now this is confidence and support that I can use!

Star Light, Star Bright

Post image for Star Light, Star Bright

I was inspired to create this artwork after experimenting with aluminum poles in a variety of concepts. One design morphed into this star looking shape that I created a center core structure that balanced all the extensions, with three pointing down and four going up. Creating this star shape reminded me of songs from my childhood and lullabies I sang to my own son.  I thought that if I could make this design it would be exciting to have our very own star to touch. It was fun putting all the parts together and watching the sculpture become realized.

12′x12′x12′, 90% recycled aluminum, treated wood, 2013, $30,000.

Mother with Child is a life size bust of a woman breast-feeding her baby. The challenge was to give the form contour and yet, to allow the eye to fill in the space. To effectively achieve the look, sheet metal was used for the focal point. The rest of the sculpture is made of steel rod. [...]

I was asked to design and create a wall sculpture that incorporated two important elements for my client. They wanted to express their belief in the combined symbolism of horses and the number 8. The number 8 is a symbol of perfection and prosperity. The horse is the symbol for virtue, vitality, beauty and strength. [...]
