**monument price is for art alone, the placement will be site-specific and require additional costs in engineering, footings, installation, travel, and comprehensive insurance to complete.
Within this context, my emphasis is on composition. Be it sheep or children, I am looking for the right posture, the natural stance, the proper spacing, the perfect tension to make the work sculpturally compelling. I strive for conceptual consistency from style and patina through to the presentation on the base. Many of my new pieces are displayed on large black walnut blocks. This creates a specific space for the composition to breath and affords a more monumental presence to the work.
Glass is a new medium for me and I am really liking the added dimensionality and the element of luminosity. In a piece like When You Pass Through, there is a great contrast that the cool, rigid glass strikes against the warm, impressionistic bronze, helping to carry the extraordinary elements of the narrative.” -Clay Enoch
