Vessel of the Innocents III

Unique Cast Bronze

79" x 27" x 12"


(To view number I and II, see Past Works Sold)


This work was commissioned into 2 smaller versions for clients.

See below -

Two smaller variations of "Vessel of the Innocents III" were created and renamed "Garden Parasol I & II" -

- both sold.   


I often recreate larger or smaller variations of my favorite sculptures - some as commissions.


Unique Cast Bronze

4'10" x 1'9" x 12"

The piece shown here was purchased by Dr. Susan Walsh for the Merced College Learning Resource Center.

The "Vessel of the Innocents" series was inspired by

"Fountain of the Innocents" 

Marble Reliefs by Jean Goujon - 1548

My series "Vessel of the Innocents" was inspired by 4 marble nymph reliefs by Jean Goujon, 1548,  from a dismantled work in the courtyard facade at the Louvre Art Museum in Paris titled "Fountain of the Innocents"The classical beauty and the contrapposto S-curve of their forms captured my admiration.  The female form is symbolically a vessel for new life, knowledge and spirit.

Rain Charmer

Unique Cast Bronze

5'3" x 1'4" x 10"


Rain Charmer is currently in the Artist's Collection 

as I plan to reproduce both smaller edition copies and enlarge her with the use of a 3D printer for a public commission.



Solitary Vessel

Limited Edition of 7 

 17.5" x 10" x 5"


This enigmatic figure stands alone, strong and confident.  Half of a vase appears partially hidden by an imaginary wall, while the other half casts a shadow on the floor.   Again the woman is a metaphor for the vessel of life.




Pandora's Puzzle

Unique Cast Bronze 

27" x 10.5" x 4"

The Greek myth of Pandora addresses the question of why is evil in the world - which is a puzzle.  Pandora, which means "the giver of all" was the first mortal woman on earth who was created by the Gods who adorned her with beauty, boldness and cunning.  Here Pandora stands on a puzzle with another puzzle hovering over her head like a cloud.  Her curiosity later leads her to open a wedding gift, a jar from Zeus, that release all miseries upon the world that would torment mortals, but she closes it quickly before 'hope' can escape.

Window of the Night

Limited Edition of 7

35"H x 25"W x 7"D

Next in the edition available upon request.


In my first home, my studio was a large room upstairs on the second story. Often at night at the end of my day, I would ascend the stairs to ponder my new artworks and view the night sky out my window. Here I wanted to create the perspective of distance, with the illusion of the larger figure in the foreground appearing closer, as the smaller figure climbing the stairs visually drops back into the distance.

A Breath Between Us

Edition of 7

35.5" x 14" x 4.5"

Next in edition available upon request.


A couple stands strong, bonded by the 

strength of their love and commitment

 as a soft breeze floats in the air between them.



Reminiscence 

Unique Cast Bronze

16" x 4.5" x 4.5"



This is another variation using the small figure 

from Window of the Night.

All my figures represent strong, independent women of passion  & conviction - a reflection of myself.


This work would make a lovely enlargement someday.


Seen below in the Eleonore Austerer Gallery 

along side Georges Braque and Henry Moore.








A Breath Between Us III

Unique Cast Bronze 

15" x 5.5" x 4.5"


This couple stands strong side-by-side 

adorned in their kimonos.

A Breath Between Us II

Unique cast bronze 

13"H x 6"W x 3"D


For every one work that gets cast into bronze, another nine waxes go back into the melting pot to be resculpted. Occasionally, a piece without much merit refuses to go back into the pot.  Yet, a client will fall in love with that particular piece - so to each his own.  I try not to be too overly critical of some works and choose to concentrate on productivity instead.

Cast Shadow #1

Unique Cast Bronze

15.5' x 13.5" x 3.5"

In this series, the base became a reflection of the figure's shadow.  

back view -

The back of the figure's coat has a large X in the design 

that appears in the negative space of the cast shadow.

A few edition copies are still available from The Months Series


In the mid-1980's I was inspired by the history of the calendar months as they evolved from classical Greek mythology.


May

Limited Edition of 7

32" x 14" x 3"


May leans against a doorway like a seductive geisha girl and represents Maia the goddess of spring, meaning the great one.

September

Limited edition of 3

30.5" x 6.5" x 3"


September stands strong and confident, at the crossroads of fall. 

In Latin September means the "seventh" month, as the original Greek calendar had only 10 months.  Edition #3/3 is available, then all others could be ordered for 3D printer copy, enlargement and casting costs.

October

Limited Edition of 7

36" x 14" x 3"


October maintians her strength and poise, although she is a broken fragmented vessel.  She looks like an ancient verdigris bronze artifact excavated from the bottom of the ocean.  October is Latin for the "eigth" month, when the Greek calendar had only 10 months.

Cast Shadow #4

Unique Cast Bronze

22" x 8" x 5"


There are MORE bronze, clay and steel works available that are not shown here on this webpage .
