Bronze and copper sculpture

The making of this forged bronze sculpture was truly a labor of love. I was so honored when my adopted hometown asked me to make a sculpture to stand at the KY Center for the Arts. “Forging Ahead: standing on the shoulders of giants,” is a symbolic representation of my debt to my personal artist-heroes: Alberto Giacometti, Diego Giacometti, and Alexander Calder. You see me standing on their shoulders, holding a symbolic Calder mobile. The slender figure recalls both Giacometti’s slimly molded figures and Dogon African metal figures. The sculpture’s texture and the fact that it is functional are tribute to Diego Giacometti.
