This limited edition bronze (1/10) on a stainless steel base stands 82 inches high.
The client was interested in creating a representation of the love and passion two people feel for each other, like that seen in Gusatv Klimts "The kiss". As I created this the client fell in love with the modest representation of the nude figures. So we agreed to not use drapery on the piece. The sculpture is in private courtyard in the center of the clients home.
Working closely with the client on all details of the sculpture included everything from changing the position of the legs to the style of hair. The client enjoyed being involved with laying the clay on the armature at the beginning to sharing in the installation at the end of the project. I have a close working relationship with the artisans such as the mold makers, patina artist and foundry workers.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
