Breaking into the third dimension.

Throughout the years I have managed to do quite a bit of sculpture. My grandmother was a potter in Zimbabwe and she let me make a few pieces out of clay. Her studio was at the bottom of the garden and the kiln opening was quite the event. During middle school and high school I was very productive making clay pieces. My current 3-d work involves clay sculpture and also my poly-resin rhino sculpture. 

 This cat, Louie, is my most recent piece. He is a commissioned sculpture made for the outdoors. He is meant as a memorial piece to a couple who lost their beloved pet.

I was very excited with how the eyes turned out.

Some rhino sculptures at the studio. These Rhinos are manufactured to my specifications. Some come factory painted, and some are handprinted by me. On the left are the rhinos that await being hand-painted.

This is a painted rock that is installed in the garden. It came out of a kid's class I taught at Wild at Art.

An early clay mask from my middle schools days. Harkens back to my African childhood.

Another very early sculpture. This one used to have a duck sitting on the back wall. The man needs to be glued upright and the pig has lost an arm, but I think it shows some indication of the direction I took with art.

Plaster sculptures by myself and students. Two gryphons and a dragon.
