The Black Tipped Reef Shark sculpture is now finished and the casting process has begun. I expect to have this piece completed in bronze in February 2014. This piece is close to 6 feet long. The photograph shows the completed sculpture in painted clay with some of the mold divide shims in place. This piece is mounted on a cluster of staghorn coral branches.
Soon I will start on a smaller version of this sculpture which will be available in the Spring of 2014. I am also casting Ella, a very large English Mastiff Cross, that was privately commissioned. Ella will be on display for a few weeks at the Pier Hotel in Sidney during January before she is installed at her home.
Continuing on from last year's commissions for a design firm in Los Angeles, I am now working on some custom swimming pool & ladders and rails with a mythical fish theme for their client in Russia.
Other sculptural projects that are on the burner and will start to come to life this spring include a life-sized beaver and a life-sized Pacific White-Sided Dolphin.
Thanks for your interest and support during the past year. Looking forward to an exciting and creative New Year in 2014. Happy New Year to you all.
