Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Many cultures buried boats with their important dead to get their spirit to the after life. This design is a spiritual boat designed to get souls to Eternity in the after life. I guess I am a little odd but I like to have a little story when people ask what it is. Make up your own story if you have another idea.

When I make these sculptures they are intended to be used as a tool for enlarging. This is a maquette, a model to measure off of by a metal fabricator to build a large version of. It also can be used as a desk top sculpture. If you pick it up to eye sight you can see a accurate indication what it would look like if you were walking up to it after it is enlarged. It is not a sketch on a piece of paper with numbers that may not be accurate. It can be scanned to easily get the patterns to build from out of flat metal sheets. Basically it is odd shaped boxes welded together in a hopefully interesting way to look at.

Basically I am selling the design and the right to have it enlarged by a fabricator close to your location of your choosing. Big sculpture is hard to ship. This maquette is easily mailed anywhere and you control the costs.

Think of sculpture as sophisticated signage. It is intended to elevate your operation in your industry in the mind of your client.

It will come with a stone base to display it on that is polished on top and rough cut on the sides.

Artist Profile

Born: 1941

Hometown: Burlington, WI

Based in: Burlington, WI

I have an ambitious approach to life ... and to art ... make something happen every day ... but most of all have fun doing it! A sculptor first, and now working in 2D, I do my best to do just that. Presented here are examples of some of my work. •• My sculpture runs the gamut from abstract, to figurative, to architectural. The materials and methods used are diverse ... from figures modeled in clay or wax, then cast in pewter or bronze ... to aluminum maquettes (produced by evaporative pattern casting) which serve as the 3D blueprints for the pieces that are enlarged and fabricated from sheet metal of all kinds.
