Elevated Perspective(Snowy owl)
First carved in snowy alabaster, the snowy owl was cast as a bronze with a limited edition of 50. We are proud 100% of all proceeds are being donated to The Roger Tory Peterson Institute for wildlife conservation programs. The price is $1,500 + applicable sales tax and shipping.
Jumpin’ Jack in the Pulpit(tree frog)
Bronze edition of 20
5“ W x 5” D x 11” H
Sometimes ideas appear in the stone which catch me totally off guard. In this case, it was a tree frog nestled in one of nature’s cradles, a jack in the pulpit. The original rendering was in green serpentine stone. And the cool thing is it holds water or a small plant.

Virginia steatite on Indiana limestone
24” W x 22” D x 48” H
Now this is how you would envision such a majestic bird as it peruses its domain. Truly Mother Nature at her finest. The Virginia Steatite, from which the raven is cut, perfectly mimics the coloration of the bird.
Ira Hudson Lesser Yellow Legs(lesser yellow legs shorebird)
Bronze edition of 10
9” W x 6” D x 13” H
I created this bronze to pay homage to my father. He painted a watercolor of this magnificent shorebird decoy for a Winchester Press publication. I lovingly recreated it in wood and stone before casting it in bronze.
In My Dreams(trout)
Bronze edition of 10
24” W x 21” D x 11” H
This is a bronze casting of a piece I sculpted in Colorado alabaster inspired by a small watercolor my father gave me when I was 10. It was a challenging project for the foundry to create a mold from the delicate stone original without damaging it. They did a remarkable job, including the exquisite patina.
Petroglyphic Paradigm: Giraffe(giraffe)
12” W x 10” D x 27” H
This is another in the Petroglyphic Paradigm Series. When I first studied this stone, I could see the head and neck of a giraffe as it was reaching for sustenance up in a tree. As was the case in the other subjects in this series, my initial perception was in two dimensions, and not in three.
Four Brick Chimney(mourning doves)
Alabaster on marble
12” W x 10” D x 20” H
While on the Isle of Wight I encountered two mourning doves perched atop a small chimney. When I found this piece of white marble it reminded me of that chimney. All I needed to do was create two mourning doves to complete the memory.
Marble on steel
23” W x 6” D x 14” H
You cannot believe how many acorns a chipmunk can cram into its cheeks. This piece of Carrara marble brought a sense of elegance to such a gluttonous spectacle.
Alabaster on wood
17” W x 11” D x 9” H
There was no doubt in my mind what this stone held. I could see it at the very first glance, a rainbow trout in its full fall colors. I love it when the stone gives me such a wonderful direction to take.
A Watchful Eye(gorilla)
14 “ W x 7” D x 18” H
The shape of the rock determined the destiny of this piece of stone. I could see the perfect profile of the face of a silver back gorilla. The coloration in the stone was an extra dividend Mother Nature threw in for me. The brown and black perfectly mimic the actual fur coloring.
Physics Lesson(green kingfisher)
Alabaster on Virginia steatite
15” W x 13” D x 16” H
This piece is as much about the books as it is about the green king fisher. It’s a tutorial on the basic forces of nature which are a consequence of our actions. For every action we take, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Riding the White Wind(snowy owl)
Marble on steel
35” W x 26” D x 26” H
This life sized snowy owl, sculpted from white marble, is installed at Brookgreen Garden in Pawley’s Island, SC. The steel base was designed to allow the owl to pulse vertically in the wind ever so slightly, allowing the bird to come to life as the breeze passes over.
Petroglyphic Paradigm: Black Rhino(black rhino)
24” W x 16” D x 18” H
This piece is part of my Petroglyphic Paradigm Series. Once again, my first glimpse of this beautiful beast was as a two-dimensional petroglyph. The bas-relief of the rhino came afterward. The stone possesses the perfect dusty quality of the rhino.
Love Knot(African elephants - mother and child)
Virginia steatite and alabaster on steel
24” W x 16” D x 15” H
I actually viewed a mother and its baby entwined like this in Tanzania. How beautiful an expression of love.
Private/Public Collection. In our collection since It was a wedding present to ourselves!
Lofty Perspecitve(red tailed hawk)
Virginia steatite on Indiana Limestone
24" W x 8" D x 96" H
This life sized red tailed hawk is perched at the Ward Museum in Salisbury, MD. I wanted to create a sense of elegance and pride for the main entrance of this impressive facility.
