Profile image of Jim CollinsJim Collins is primarily a sculptor, Jim Collins has been figurative in his art from the beginning.

Each figure was a statement about the contemporary style and fashion of the times.

Sculpture description:
An Amusing Fun Seated Flat Watcher Weather Proof Aluminium sculptures in a Top Hat is another in the series some with different Hat stylesfor Outdoors in the Garden. This one has the addition of reflective traffic tape adding a design element. There are three hat styles with this group. First, the Ball Hat or Trucker?s Hat as some call it, has become an international model, which can be found on the heads of thousands in every part of the world. The Top Hat and Straw Hat seem contemporary statues/sculptures/garden decoration for sale as a tribute to Joyce and his 1904 literary work. In fact I have only ventured from the Ball Hat on a few occasions with other hat designs. While browsing in a local bookstore in 1987 I discovered the book: Movies of the 1930?s filled with photographs of movie stills. This started me to thinking about different hats for the Watcher. It occurred to me that by simply changing the chapeau a new identity could be given to the seated man.

The artist, Plamen Dimitrov, is amazing! He delivered the work right on schedule and it was packed with incredible care to make sure it a... [Read more]
