When not busy with commissions, I enjoy creating impressionistic figurative sculptures, often made in direct wax. By making the sculpture directly in wax, there is no mold, so each sculpture is one of a kind. I have made the same composition more than once, but as no two are ever exactly alike, they are still unique sculptures. An example of this process is my sculpture, “Circadian Rhythm.” It is created by dipping a piece of rope in wax and cutting it up to make a stick figure. By doing this it insures that the wax arms and legs will stay attached as I build the figure up with wax. When working in this style, I prefer not to use any tools, employing only pressure from my fingers to generate movement and texture. Many of these dance sculptures are inspired by the ballet, as well as images I find in dance magazines.
