Timing and the Art of 1st Place

Bronze sculpture is a bit different than other forms of art in that a mold is created of the original piece.  Giving the artist the ability to cast several pieces of the nearly same piece for years into the future.  Which is a good thing considering how much time and money goes into creating the original sculpture.

Several years ago I created this River Otter as part of a commissioned series for a public park.  The project took me a couple of years to produced more than 20 different animals.  I was extremely fortunate to have been given taxidermied animals from the park to work from and free rein in design.

Recently I entered five different animals including the otter into an international juried show and won 1st place in sculpture.  Because of timing, entering shows is not something I have done much of.  Guess I will be changing that!  We all need our ego stroked, don’t we?
