The Gorilla portrait has finally been cast in bronze and was installed in theTropical Forest building at the Franklin Park Zoo, Boston, MA. The bronze was dedicated in April, 2013. At the Zoo's request the piece was hung at a level so that children can touch and feel it. We hope that you'll be able to see it for yourself and enjoy this wonderful facility. From volunteers, we are told that people are taking family portraits with the Gorilla, and children seem to like to stick their fingers in its nostrils.
The Lady on the Rock has been cast and is on exhibit at the Rockport Art Association, Rockport, MA. The exhibition runs through June.
We have eight new subjects -- Manatee, Seal, Humpback Whale, Snook, Tarpon, Hogfish, and Mermaid. We're also working on a shell piece in the round. Not all the photos are downloaded yet, but we hope you'll check out our newest tiles.
If you have a special, personal design you want sculpted on a tile, I can do that for you in just about any size.
My wife, Karen, helps with the glazing process. Each tile is an individual piece of art from beginning to end. We also have whimsical pieces such as mermaids and sea serpents.
Our clay of choice is Bright White-High Fire Stoneware Clay which is one of the finest clays you can use for ceramics.
We hope you enjoy our distinctive tiles.
