Sculpture description:
This is a collaborative piece I made with American bronze sculptor CT Whitehouse. Please see Artist comments.
Artist's comments:
I have long admired the elegant work of bronze sculptor CT Whitehouse. For some time we`ve talked about the idea of working together on sculpture and this is our first collaborative piece. CT`s vessel, titled, "Infinity" is held by my stone hand which is supported by and part of my neo-classical base. The title reflects the potential limitlessness of creative collaboration which, with the right combination of people and intention, can be manifest in virtually any endeavor.

Through this collaboration, we`ve created work that expands and ennobles our respective art forms. The first sculpture, "Infinite Possibilities" is well titled for both this work of art as well as the future of our collaboration.

CT and I develop design ideas through dialog and drawings. When a design is polished and agreed to, the process of making the sculpture begins. At his studio, Whitehouse meticulously creates the bronze vessel that will rest in the stone. This is a multi-stage process that begins with shaping and carving clay, on through orchestrating all the steps of the foundry process. Once completed he sends the cast bronze, without patina, to me. I then begin the painstaking process of fitting the complex shape into the carving block. When that work is completed and the bronze vessle rests snugly in the stone block, I then proceed with carving the balance of the sculpture in stone. When the carving is finally completed, I return the bronze to Whitehouse who then applies the patina finish. The final bronze and the final carving are then reunited to create the complete sculpture.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
