A fellow in Missouri saw my Green Man masks in bronze that I made in the early 00's and asked if I could make something similar. Once we determined the design, I sketched this out in clay, full size at 38cm (15") high. He wanted a few berries added, and I knew he liked bees, so we wound up with this:
About 5kg (11 lb) in bronze, with mounting holes top and bottom.
I'm a woodcarver, turned sculptor, and morphed into a pattern-maker for cast metals. These days I hesitate to define my work, avoiding words like 'artist' or 'craftsman'. I just love designing and making things, keeping a bit of time free to downhill ski, paddle my kayak, and sing with my fellow choristers.
