|A book for beginners that covers just about everything.|
My art and sculptures are works done mostly in stone (marble, limestone, alabaster, soapstone) and some wood or clay. Major inspiration for my sculptures come my relationships and feelings about God, people, nature, and the things we surround ourselves with. You're invited to view my sculptures and art and to tell me a little about yourself. Enjoy! Shane
Passions drive all of us. Some for better, some for worse. I steer mine into a medium that shapes me as I shape it. I have deep interactions with each of my sculptures yet I am loathed to name them or explain them. Instead I wish for each person to make them their own according to their own experiences. This is my ultimate goal. To somehow, someway, touch someone as they have never been touched before.
Larger pictures of stone and wood sculptures are loaded under thumbnail images. For those of you with newer browsers this will open a new window for each piece. 3-D versions must have Apples' QuickTime available free for download. To rotate pictures click and hold down on mouse and move it side to side. Thank you and enjoy, Shane.
