"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. 

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 and 

larger versions for edition copies.



Solitary Vessel

Limited Edition of 7 

 17.5" x 10" x 5"


The figure is symbolic of a vessel that appears partially hidden by an imaginary wall - yet the cast shadow on the floor completes the other half of the vase that is obscured from our vision.




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"

A couple stands strong, bonded by the 

strength of their love and commitment

 as a soft breeze floats in the air between them.

from Window of the Night








A Breath Between Us III

Unique Cast Bronze 

15" x 5.5" x 4.5"


This couple stands 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, one of my favorites, stands at the crossroads of fall 

and in Latin means the "seventh" month as the original calendar had only 10 months.

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"
